Only a few years ago (1950s) we walked on solid earth. Today we whirl through space. Space is big. It is not cozy. But with these verses and drawings... cheerfulness breaks in. Suddenly, science seems merry. And space begins, with the rhyme on page 1, to feel a little more like home. A witty collection of 1950's space age poetry accompanied by clever black and white line drawings by Marian Parry.… (mais)

If you love nursery rhymes and science, this volume will make your chuckle a few times. While most rhymes appear in English, several languages make appearances in one poem each. My LibraryThing 2020 Secret Santa chose a book I'm certain to revisit a few times. ( )

Years ago, I came across the "Probable Possible, My Black Hen" rhyme and have been on the lookout for this book ever since. I'm happy to report the rest of the book is just as delightful. The reworked nursery rhymes have a wonderful cool-jazz kind of feel to them:

Resistor, transistor, condensers in pairs,
Battery, platter, record me some airs;
Squeaker and squawker and woofer times pi,
And Baby shall have his own private Hi-Fi. ( )

One day in the 1950s a retired architect started combining a lifetime of light verse with modern science fiction. The resulting rhymes and ditties were not only silly, they were also entirely based on philosophy and science, this being mainly Einsteinian and quantum physics and mathematics. The author himself, alas, did not make it through the year in which this book was published but the book remained a cult classic into the 21st century. The illustrator carried the torch for the next 50 years ensuring that the book would not be forgotten. She was, in fact, responsible for much of the love and craft that had gone into it so it is less an intellectual exercise and more a complete work of art.

Mother Goose is the sort of book that I love to give as a gift because my friends are just the sort of people who can appreciate the absurdity and get the references. This book is whimsy elevated to absolute genius. ( )

I don't even understand a small fraction of the physics behind this delightful book, but love the idea of spacers reading it to their children in harness just before tranking for the jump. ( )

I first saw this book when a friend of mine who was a physicist for NASA lent it to me. It has been a favorite, and my son loved it dearly.
I recently bought another copy and it's unchanged.

Laura, Theresa, Elizabeth, Anne / We've covered these pages as best we can / With intricate pictures and elegant rhymes, / All suited, we trust, to your quicksilver times; / But if it's vieux jeu and it leaves you cold, / Forgive us, darlings, We're Awfully Old.

This is the Space Child with Brow Serene
Who Pushed the Button to Start the Machine
That made with the Cybernetics and Stuff
Without Confusion, exposing the Bluff
That hung on the Turn of a Plausible Phrase
And, shredding the Erudite Verbal Haze
Cloaking Constant K
Wrecked the Summary
Based on Mummery
Hiding the Flaw
And Demolished the Theory that Jack built.
