“A favorite old nursery ballad now appears in resplendent new dress. . . . Illustrator Feodor Rojankovsky somehow manages to combine quaintness with sophistication and his doughty frog, the coy mouse . . . and others make charming company.”—The New York Times Book Review

Children's Literature

A family favorite when I was growing up was Langstaff's Frog Went A-Courtin'. This 400-year-old Scotch ballad, which garnered a Caldecott for illustrator Feodor Rojankovsky, seems as absurd and appealing as ever, with its swashbuckling frog hero, maidenly mouse, and nuptials in a meadow rich with rollicking friends, including a banjo-playing bee and a jigging flea.
