In this delightful book, Miss Sackville-West writes of nursery rhymes, of their history and of their place in childhood and childhood's memories with charm and wit, and in a prose style that is a constant delight. Although disclaiming any deep scholarship in the subject, she nevertheless introduces to the reader many new and fascinating aspects of a branch of "literature" which has hitherto attracted few literary critics.
