Waterstones Says

The renowned illustrator of The Lost Words and The Lost Spells delivers a sumptuous collection of nursery rhymes, both famous and little-known, accompanied by a series of breathtaking watercolour illustrations.

A wonderfully illustrated and sumptuous collection of nursery rhymes for all ages, including many favourite rhymes as well as some that will be a delightful discovery. Originally published as The Cat and the Fiddle in 2011, this edition includes a new introduction by Jackie Morris - a spirited defence of the nursery rhyme, which she fears is in danger of being forgotten in a digital world.

The beautiful and detailed watercolour paintings combine with over 40 rhymes to make this a unique treasury and lifetime possession for children and adults of all ages.
