Children's books: The Peter Pan Alphabet

-

C is the Crocodile Creepy who ate
The right hand of Hook and covets
its mate
He makes a loud ticking wherever he
goes
For he swallowed a Clock (To kill time
I suppose)



From Oliver Herford's The Peter Pan Alphabet (1907) based on J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan. The entire book can found at Internet Archive.

B's for the Boys, all as Busy as Bees.
They are building a Little House under the Trees
With funny red walls and mossy green roof ...
