Closeout Price! Facsimile of the original 1900 edition. Recommended. By Norman. Art by Carton Moorepark. This charming children's book, written by an anonymous author known only as "Norman," was first published in 1900 and is now extremely rare. It features 11 rhymes that capture the mysterious and sometimes ridiculous world of goblins, witches and fairies. Naughty imps and elves love to play pranks, tease and make mischief on humans, animals and one another. And while few of these fairy tales have a happy ending, all of them offer the reader a moral lesson of sorts. Each verse is accompanied by several drawings by illustrator Carton Moorepark in either one, two or three simple colors.

This charming children's book, written by an anonymous author known only as "Norman," was first published in 1900 and is now extremely rare. It features 11 rhymes that capture the mysterious and sometimes ridiculous world of goblins, witches and fairies. Naughty imps and elves love to play pranks, tease and make mischief on humans, animals and one another. And while few of these fairy tales have a happy ending, all of them offer the reader a moral lesson of sorts. Each verse is accompanied by several drawings by illustrator Carton Moorepark in either one, two or three simple colors.

This facsimile edition is bound with a silkscreened cloth cover which perfectly captures the striking poster-like quality of Moorepark's artwork. It even feels like an edition from 125 years ago, as the blue cloth cover looks like those old paper boards that did not hold up to frequent handling, the way this one will.

Printed on high-quality paper to create a collectible object that recipients young and old will treasure long into adulthood. It is the latest volume in a series of special facsimiles of historic illustrated children's titles selected and produced by Art / Books, Art Books Publishing, in England.

Another book in this facsimile series is ABC An Alphabet by Arts and Crafts artist and designer Georgie Gaskin (1866–1934), reproducing the rare 1895 edition.
