Enjoyable set of poems. I don't know the original poetry that inspired it, though, so I probably didn't get as much from it as I should have. ( )

Asher and I have declared this book to be "cozy". High praise from both of us. ( )

This is a collection of poetry written in the style (somewhat) of William Blake.Travelers join together at William Blake's Inn and silliness ensues. Beautiful poems couple with gorgeous illustrations to make a great picture book. As a fan of William Blake, this was a hit! ( )

And for Eric, who loves Blake
First words
Introduction: I was seven and starting my second week in bed with the measles when I made the acquaintance of William Blake.
This inn belongs to William Blake
and many are the beasts he's tamed
and many are the stars he's named
and many those who stop and take
their joyful rest with William Blake.
