Transcription: Are You A Goop? The Library Goops (With Apologies to Gelett Burgess) The Goops they wet their fingers To turn the leaves of books, And then they crease the corners down And think that no one looks. They print the marks of dirty hands, Of lollipops and gum, On picture-book and fairy-book, As often as they come. --Caroline M. Hewins
