Read full description of the books:



"A magical gift with words--a poet's gift--and his whimsical humor are the qualities that draw the children to Carl Sandburg.... There is in (his humor) the appeal of sound as well as of action. It is a humor so distinctive, so individual, that only a great poet could have made it universal.... All of Sandburg's words are significant. His words have not only meaning, they have a definite relation to one another. They dance a measure in The Wedding procession of the Rag Doll and the Broom Handle. They sing a melody in that story of his that belongs with pure poetry rather than with humor--The White Horse Girl and the Blue Wind Boy. His stories are joyous rather than humorous. Indeed, they are both joyous and humorous. They have the natural 'tempo' of childhood."

--Mary Gould Davis

This is an omnibus volume including all the stories in "Rootabaga Stories" and "Rootabaga Pigeons." The original illustrations by the Petershams are also included.
