Little Miss Muffet Counts to Ten by Emma Chichester Clark


Little Miss Muffet Counts to Ten by Emma Chichester Clark

In the nursery rhyme the spider frightened Miss Muffet away. Well, not this time! The spider asks her to stay, and to be polite she does. And then come the animals: two, three, four, five- bearing gifts and delicacies and decorations. But why? Find out in this riotous new paperback picture book by one of Britain's most acclaimed illustrators.

* Practical Parenting * 'A winning combination of delicious pictures and surreal rewritings of the nursery rhyme.

* Evening Standard * Deliciously diverting. * Books for Keeps *
