I Saw Esau - The Schoolchild's Pocket Book

Author(s): Iona Opie (Editor); Peter Opie (Editor); Maurice Sendak (Illustrator)


"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me." That's what children chant when they are being teased; it's what their parents chanted, and probably their grandparents before them. Collected in this invaluable book are the wit and wisdom of generations of schoolchildren--more than 170 selections ranging from insults and riddles to jeers and jump-rope rhymes. With Iona Opie's introduction and detailed notes and Maurice Sendak's remarkable pictures--vignettes, sequences, and full-page paintings both wickedly funny and comically sad--it offers knowledge and entertainment to all who open it.
