Synopsis

Mother Goose's Little Treasures by Iona Opie

From the far reaches of shared memory come these charming but little-known nursery rhymes, mysterious tidbits of lore brought back to shining life by the shared talents of the two most beloved Mother Goose treasurers, Iona Opie and Rosemary Wells. Open these pages and discover Mrs Whirly the Fish Fryer, the Wee Melodie Man and many other wild and wonderful characters.

About the Author

Iona Opie is considered to be the world's leading expert on children's lore and literature, and has edited many acclaimed books including I Saw Esau, illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Speaking of Mother Goose's Little Treasures, she says that the rhymes are the most mysterious fragments from our shared memory: long-ago laughter of little meaning and echoes of ancient spells. She lives in Hampshire. Rosemary Wells is a well-loved and prolific creator of picture books with a career that spans more than thirty years, with books including the famed Mother Goose anthologies and Felix and the Worrier (9780744598322). She lives in Connecticut, USA.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.
