"Animal Children The Friends of the Forest and the Plain" was written by Edith Brown Kirkwood and illustrated by M T Ross. This delightful book has Edwardian dressed animals each paired with a witty little poem.
A rhino in a bathing costume, for instance, has this ditty underneath the illustration:
Young Miss Rhinoceros gave a beach party;
She greeted her friends with a welcome most hearty.
They laughed and they joked and they swam in the sea,
And the party was gay, as a party should be.
