Description
From the award-winning creators of MY VERY FIRST MOTHER GOOSE, an invitation to the simple joy and the sly humor that are the essence of Mother Goose.
Spread the word--here comes Mother Goose--and with her comes an entire procession of best-loved nursery rhyme characters, including Mary Mary Quite Contrary, Simple Simon, Old Mother Hubbard, Little Tommy Tucker, the Queen of Hearts, and many more. Joining them is an array of colorful folk you may not have met before: Mrs. Murphy, for instance, and My Aunt Jane; Freda the American Beauty, Bonny Bobby Shaftoe, and Dusty Bill from Vinegar Hill--each of them well worth getting to know, as we're sure you'll agree.
