Book of Beasts

Amusing advice and rhymes for young children. The text is accompanied with equally amusing drawings which have drawn comparison to the works seen in Dr. Seuss books. The beasts include a yak, a polar bear, a dodo bird, a dromedary, a whale, and many more. Belloc was a prolific author whose interests ranged from politics and religion to travel and poetry.

First published in 1896, this edition is derived from the original book with 46 black and white illustrations, including the cover, by Basil Temple Blackwood. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
