New Book! The Jingle Poems by Carolyn Wells

Carolyn Wells worked as a librarian. She also wrote 170 books. During the first ten years of her career, she concentrated on poetry, humor, and children's books. The Jingle Poems is a classic collection for young readers. She later began writing mystery stories which became popular and made her a household name. A sample of her fun from this collection:

Betty Botta bought some butter;
“But,” said she, “this butter’s bitter!
If I put it in my batter
It will make my batter bitter.
But a bit o’ better butter
Will but make my batter better.”
Then she bought a bit o’ butter
Better than the bitter butter,
Made her bitter batter better.
So ’twas better Betty Botta
Bought a bit o’ better butter.
