Newly commissioned illustrations by way of Jonathan Allen and an advent through Naomi Lewis make this the variation of selection for a brand new new release of readers.
His Waistcoat and Trousers have been made up of red meat Chops;--
His Buttons have been Jujubes, and Chocolate Drops;--
Hi Coat was once all Pancakes with Jam for a Border,
And a girdle of Biscuits to maintain it in order.
