If you think you know Mother Goose, think again. In addition to some of the usual Mother Goose rhymes included in every collection, Petra Mathers has found and illustrated many wonderful rhymes you haven't heard before. You will find "Little Miss Muffet," of course, but also the delightful tongue twister "Betty Botter Bought Some Butter," as well as some other darker ryhmes that have been dropped from recent collections. Mather's illustrations alone are worth the price of the book; whimsical, cheery and always enhancing the text. This book is a treasure for the whole family.
