Product Details


This quirky Mother Goose book turns convention on its head. Each of the 14 selections contemporizes a traditional rhyme and pairs it with a rebuttal or an aside by a grumpy protagonist… inventive.’ —Kirkus Reviews

“‘Creative… broad-ranging… spins on Mother Goose nursery rhymes… Whimsical, cartoonish acrylic-and-pencil illustrations incorporate playful details and decorative page embellishments, blending classic scenarios and contemporary settings and elements. A playful addition to any poetry section.” —Booklist

“The imaginative poems can tickle the funny bone… an excellent choice for writing workshops and classroom prompts.” —School Library Journal
