: A Book For Kids

Here's a ridiculous riddle for you:

How many o's are there in Woolloomooloo?

Two for the W, two for the m,

Four for the l's, and that's plenty for them.

I wonder what the Jacks have got to laugh and laugh about

I'm sure the worms don't see the joke when Jacky digs them out.

I wonder which is best: a rich plum-pudding stuffed with plums,

Or lemon ice, or plain boiled rice, or long-division sums.
