"Great Grandmother Goose" by Helen Cooper, illustrated by Krystyna Turska (published by Hamish Hamilton, London 1978)

This is another great book I was lucky to find recently with some amazing illustrations by Krystyna Turska (b.1933). Turska was born in Poland and came to Britain in 1948 after escaping from a Nazi concentration camp in Russia. (more details on this website: ). Her book "Pegasus" got a commendment for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1970 and two years later she was awarded the Greenaway Medal for "The Woodcutter's Duck"(Hamish Hamilton,1971). Just brilliant and imaginative line illustrations with lovable and funny characters. I will be posting some more from this book soon.
