Little Bo Peep
Has lost her sheep,
The radar has failed to find them.
They'll all, face to face,
Meet in parallel space,
Preceding their leaders behind them.
Only a few years ago (1950s) we walked on solid earth. Today we whirl through space. Space is big. It is not cozy. But with these verses and drawings... cheerfulness breaks in. Suddenly, science seems merry. And space begins, with the rhyme on page 1, to feel a little more like home.
A witty collection of 1950's space age poetry accompanied by clever black and white line drawings. A Limited Edition of 250 numbered hardcover books signed by illustrator Marian Parry is available at $40 each, both editions are in stock.
