Elfin Rhymes by Norman
Elfin Rhymes by ‘Norman,’ with 40 Drawings by Carton Moore Park
This 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 funny world of goblins, witches and fairies. Children and parents alike will enjoy 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. Illustrations by Carton Moore Park in two or three simple colors in a style that not only conveys the magic of the fairy realm, but is also strikingly modern in character.
This facsimile edition is bound with a silkscreened cloth cover and printed on high-quality paper.
