The Naughty Boy

Viking, 1965

This mischievous poem first appeared in a letter written by a young John Keats, who called it “a song about myself.” It has been beloved by children ever since. Ezra Jack Keats has caught the poet’s whimsical spirit and kept his drawings simple to let us better imagine the wanderings of the naughty boy who “could not quiet be.”
