JOHNNY CROW’S PARTY

ANOTHER PICTURE BOOK

DRAWN BY

L. LESLIE BROOKE

First Edition, 1907

TO MY NEPHEW

SOMERSET

HAPPY IN A NAME THAT

ASSURES HIS WELCOME

TO JOHNNY CROW’S—­OR

ANY OTHER—­PARTY

Johnny Crow Plied Rake and Hoe

And improved his little Garden.

And the Eagle

Looked quite regal

In Johnny Crow’s Garden

And the Cockatoo
Said “Comment vous portez vous?

And the Gander

Didn’t understand her;

But the Flamingo
Talked the same lingo

In Johnny Crow’s Garden.

And the Bear

Sang a sentimental Air,

But the Giraffe
Was inclined to laugh;

Even the Duckling
Couldn’t help chuckling
In Johnny Crow’s Garden.

Then the Snake

Got entangled with the rake

In Johnny Crow’s Garden.

And the Cock

Had a very nasty knock;

So the Hen
Said: 

“We’ll never come again

To Johnny Crow’s Garden!”

And the Sheep

Went to sleep,

And the Armadillo

Used him for a pillow;

And the Porcupine

Said:  “Wake me if for talk you pine!”

In Johnny Crow’s

Garden.

And the Kangaroo

Tried to paint the Roses blue

Till the Camel
Swallowed the Enamel.

And the Reindeer
Said:  “I’m sorry for your pain, dear!”

In Johnny Crow’s Garden.

So the Chimpanzee
Put the Kettle on for Tea;

And the Seal

Made a very big Meal;

While the Sole
Shared a Muffin with the Mole
In Johnny Crow’s Garden.

Then they picked the Flowers, and
Wandered in the Maze,
And before they went their several ways

They all joined together
In a Hearty Vote of Praise

Of Johnny Crow and his
Garden.
