The Children's Voice: A Definitive Collection of Welsh Nursery Rhymes

The Children's Voice by Peter Anthony Freeman features 27 different artists from the US and Wales bridged together to create the most cherished and timeless Welsh nursery rhyme book imagined.

The Children's Voice includes an all-star cast of illustrators from Nathan Wyburn (Abergavenny, UK) jamming Y Broga Bach on toast, Anthony Richards of Ammanford, UK dripping Bwrw Glaw, and Siobhan Owen rendering Fuoch chi Rioed yn Morio?, and many more!
