An ongoing series of children’s book illustrations based on poems from A. A. Milne’s ‘When We Were Very Young’.
John had Great Big Waterproof Boots on;
John had a Great Big Waterproof Hat;
John had a Great Big Waterproof Mackintosh –
And that (Said John) Is That.
What shall I call
My dear little dormouse?
His eyes are small,
But his tail is e-nor-mouse.
I sometimes call him Terrible John,
'Cos his tail goes on -
And on -
And on.
And I sometimes call him Terrible Jack,
'Cos his tail goes on to the end of his back.
And I sometimes call him Terrible James,
'Cos he says he likes me calling him names…
But I think I shall call him Jim,
'Cos I am fond of him.
