Originally published in 1959, five delightful poems by Margaret Wise Brown capture the simple eloquence of the natural world and illuminate the whimsy of bunnies at play. Now the charming paintings of award-winning naturalist artist Wendell Minor will "nibble nibble nibble" their way into the hearts of a whole new generation of Margaret Wise Brown readers.
Wendell Minor reinvigorates the text of Nibble, Nibble, a Margaret Wise Brown picture book first published in 1959. Minor nicely balances realistic paintings of rabbits, mice and birds with a hint of personality-intelligence in the eyes, or two rabbits nose to nose (for "Softly now beats the beat of my heart/ All for the love of you")-for this handful of poems that range from tender to comical ("Hop Skip Jump/ A rabbit won't fight./ Hop Skip Jump/ A rabbit won't bite").
