This collection brings together the poems Ted Hughes wrote for children throughout his life.

In the Oxford Companion to Children's Literature it says of James Reeves, 'His real achievement, however, lies in his poetry, which is generally regarded as the best British ''serious'' children's verse since Walter de la Mare - though the poems are usually far from serious in subject-matter.' In this complete edition, first published in 1973, the delight is two-fold as the poems are complemented by Edward Ardizzone's beautiful and witty illustrations.

RHODES OF AFRICA by FELIX GROSS and pages of half-ton illustrations FREDERICK A. PRAEGER NEW YORK Cecil Rhodes In Memoriam AUTHORS NOTE rip HIS book, the result of twelve years of research work, is JL based on authentic contemporary sources. The thoughts and soliloquies of Cecil Rhodes are derived from his speeches, letters and reported conversations. So as not to interrupt the continuity of the story I have refrained from giving references in footnotes. An extensive bibliography of Rhodes and his times will be published later as it would be too bulky to be included in this volume. Ipi order to give inquisitive scholars an opportunity to make use of this bibliography one copy will be deposited in each of the following libraries Public Library, Cape Town. Library of the British Museum., London. Bodleian Library, Oxford. Library of Congress, Washington D. C.. I wish to express my gratitude to my daughter, Miss Ursula A, Gross, M. A., M.
