I WISH IT WOULD RAIN
'I WISH it would rain, oh! I wish it would
But there isn’t a cloud in the sky,
And the dust is a-blowing down Buttercup Lane,
And everywhere’s perfectly dry.'
A collection of poems for young children. Perhaps one of the most beautiful books in the the Enid Blyton canon with delightful colour plates and line drawings.
Small quarto, illustrated endpapers, 128 pages, frontispiece and eight full page colour plates, numerous full-page black& white illustrations throughout; bound in original decorated cloth, top-edge gilt and others uncut; some foxing, a lovely copy.
