A Mischievous Menagerie in Rhyme Book by Robert L. Forbes, Drawings by Ronald Searle

At NCMA's Future Art Space for Children

Have you heard about the gnus? Or the lobsters and boars? What about the bears, sloths, or the pelican named George? If you haven't heard, the whole animal kingdom is roaring its approval for Beastly Feasts! This collection of delectable rhymes about animals naughty and nice with zany illustrations of each featured creature, is sure to entertain and pique the imagination of the littlest child.

Beastly Feasts! A Mischievous Menagerie in Rhyme, NCMA's latest exhibition in the Art Space for Children, is based on the imaginative writings of Robert L. Forbes. On display are the original fanciful illustrations created for the book by artist Ronald Searle.
