The Scroobious Pip

by Ogden Nash Edward Lear
Illustrated by Nancy Ekholm Burkert

One Potato Review

The lonesome, if approachable, freak who apparently made it over on Noah’s ark. Every illustration in this book looks like it should be hanging in a museum somewhere, and the text, by Edward Lear and Ogden Nash, will probably become embedded in even the youngest reader’s consciousness:

“Chippety tip
Chippety tip
Its only name is the Scroobious Pip.”
