Poems liberally illustrated, with the subjects sometimes posed, at other times surprisingly spontaneous, including a poem about children pretending to be three bears in the grown ups' heavy coats! Always in Nister's beautiful deepest colours. According to the Hunts, probably one of the last books Ernest Nister himself supervised before his death on 1909.
