Scribbling Through Mother Goose

By Pamela Duncan Edwards; Diana Cain Bluthenthal (Illustrator)

As a baby, a young scribble begins to draw. As a grown-up Neat Line, it discovers a special talent.

Wriggling into a book of nursery rhymes, the Neat Line knows just how to help the troubled characters it meets, including a sleepy Little Boy Blue who needs his horn to summon the sheep and cows. And before the day is done, there's an ever-cranky Miss Muffet's menacing spider to scare off.

Pamela Duncan Edwards and Diana Cain Bluthenthal pair up for a clever visual journey through the classic rhymes of childhood.
