Description
Some children are simply too naughty for Mother Goose to handle. Luckily her sister Spinster Goose knows just how to deal with these uncouth urchins. Her school is home to some world-class troublemakers: they bite and pinch, they talk back and fight--they eat chalk But brats beware--this isn t just any school, and Spinster isn't your average goose. Her curious methods will rid these students of their horrendous behaviors right?
Fans of Mother Goose will delight in these devilishly twisted alternatives to classic rhymes.
