Old Mother Hubbard's poor dog just wants a bone. What he gets instead is even better!

Old Mother Hubbard sets off on a shopping spree to buy her hungry dog some shoes, a wig, a coat - everything but the bone he craves. This could take a while. But with Mother out and about, the dog can't just sit still. Not when he can ride a goat or wash the cat or dance a jig.

Mother Hubbard and dog's escapades get sillier and sillier with each new trip, until finally they both find what they're looking for. Any dog-loving child will appreciate the depiction of an excited dog who just can't wait.

Jane Cabrera's Story Time celebrates children's best-loved read along nursery rhymes and songs. These interactive favorites are given a new twist by award-winning artist Jane Cabrera and feature her bold, bright, kid-friendly illustrations. Other titles in the series include Ten in the Bed, Wheels on the Bus, and Old MacDonald Had a Farm.

"Cabrera's candy-colored paintings are divertingly droll."—The Bulletin
"Ex-toddlers will eat this up."—Kirkus Reviews
