Publisher's Description

This hand-picked collection of classic nursery rhymes, all delicately and painstakingly illustrated by Salley Mavor, who is reknown for her incredibly detailed fabric and cloth scenes.

It took Mavor ten years to develop her own fabric relief technique to a level where she felt comfortable even considering illustrating a book. Now, Mavor embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to complete. In this book, Mavor renders a new and visionary nursery rhyme world with precision and intricacy for many a generation to treasure for years and years to come.

Author Bio

Salley Mavor has illustrated many picture books in her signature style. She lives on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

Editorial Reviews

"When teachers bemoan the lack of knowledge of nursery tales in their young students, press this special volume into their hands, but get one for home, too: every family deserves a fine collection of nursery rhymes, and this is one of the best."—The Horn Book, starred review

"On every page, embroidery, knotwork and beautifully dyed wool felt form backgrounds for the dozens of individual figures and buttons, beads, driftwood and stones. The design is sumptuous, and the smaller details enchant."—Kirkus Reviews

"Rarely have classic childhood verses been depicted with so much care and detail—and fabric....Mavor's intricate and colorfully embroidered work of art makes even the best-known childhood poems feel special and new again."—Publishers Weekly

"An unusual and charming addition to nursery-rhyme shelves."—School Library Journal
