Elfin Rhymes


This charming children's book, written by an anonymous author known only as "Norman," first published in 1900 and now extremely rare, features 11 rhymes that capture the mysterious and sometimes ridiculous world of goblins, witches and fairies. Children and parents alike will delight at these stories of naughty imps and elves who 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 Moore Park in either one, two or three simple colors in a that not only conveys the magic of the fairy realm, but is also strikingly modern in character.
