Title: Hewins - Are You A Goop?
ink, watercolor on paper (est.)
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
As often as they come.
--Caroline M. Hewins
Children's Literature Research Collection
Poem, in style of Gelett Burgess, about children who soil library books.
