Nanette The Hungry Pelican

From Nanette The Hungry Pelican, by William Wise, illustrated by Winifred Lubell, published by Rand McNally, copyright 1969. (My copy a First Printing, February 1969 is now for sale.)

Mrs. Peabody Fitch
Was terribly rich,
And her house was as big as a mountain.

It had beautiful trees,
And a garden with bees,
And goldfish that swam in a fountain.

I guess we know where Nanette comes in…
