Description - Ann At Highwood Hall by Robert Graves
A classic children?s book of verse by Robert Graves evokes the world of Victorian England.
Boisterous, witty, and enchanting, this collection of children?s poems by Robert Graves-with iconic drawings by Edward Ardizzone-will delight any young reader. First published over 50 years ago, this is a faithful reproduction of the 1964 original that was published in the United States and Great Britain.Seven poems evoke the world of Victorian England and include the story of Ann, "the third-but-youngest child of seventeen" who runs away to live at a duke?s palace; a valentine in verse; a battle of words lost in translation between King George II and the Chinese Emperor; a bedside visit to a little girl from her doctor; and a lively argument between young Caroline and Charles that sounds a lot like 21st-century banter between children.Ann at Highwood Hall will thrill scholars of Robert Graves, collectors of classic children?s books, illustrators, historians...and poetry lovers of all ages.
