Summary

Inspired by William Blake's work, Nancy Willard has written a book of magical poems about life at an imaginary inn, run by none other than William Blake himself.

The inn is staffed by two mighty dragons that brew and bake, two angels that wash and shake the feather beds, and a rabbit who shows visitors to their rooms. Among the remarkable guests are the man in the Marmalade Hat; the King of Cats, who writes his wife not to "grow fat like a common kitchen cat"; and two sunflowers who demand a room with a view.

Kids enjoyed it

what more can I say? they're easily pleased, but if you need something short for bedtime that won't break the bank this is great. We'll told too.

Great bedtime poetry

If you could sum up A Visit to William Blake's Inn in three words, what would they be?

Very pleasant poetry. I often listen to it, and I'm all grown up. Nancy Willard wrote many other enjoyable books. Hope some of them will become Audible books as well.
