Friday’s library snapshot …

October 3, 2014

I came across this little book of verse this when researching for  a ‘Tweet’ to celebrate National Poetry day on Thursday. The theme was ‘Remember’  so this one really fitted the bill.

When grandmamma was young : Victorian verses for young persons / collected by a great aunt ; with lino-cuts by William McCance ; published by Four Elms Press.

As Grandmamma I grimaced at the experiences she ‘remembered’ My mother didn’t punish us by putting us in the corner but our teachers did … it is cruel and degrading.  

While it is interesting it really isn’t a book I will be buying or looking at again.
