The National Trust Book of Nursery Rhymes

Author(s): Ian Penney


A treasure trove of much loved nursery rhymes, delightfully illustrated with paintings linking the verses to National Trust properties. Where was the wall that Humpty Dumpty was sitting on before he had his great fall? In which garden did Mary. Mary. quite contrary grow those silver bells and cockle shells? Through lan Penney's delightfully detailed illustrations, this collection of favourite nursery rhymes links traditional verses to different National Trust properties; from Ham House in Surrey to Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire; from A La Ronde in Devon, to the Hickory Dickory clock at Mount Stewart in Northern Ireland. You can turn to the back page to discover all the links between the rhymes and National Trust buildings. Meanwhile, there are fourteen little National Trust acorns hiding in these pages -see how long it takes you to find them!
