Overview

Everyone remembers the fabulous rhyming stories of Mother Goose from their childhood, but did you know that she's kept a dark, haunting secret for many long years?

Mother Goose is not all she seems to be.

Oh, sure, during the daylight hours when the birds are singing and children are laughing, old Mother Goose is friendly and wonderful and proper. But when the darkness falls and the coyote calls, that old goose turns into something much less loveable…much more sinister…forever known to the world as Granny Gruesome!

Recommended for teens and up due to dark comedic verse and over-the-top illustrations.

Be sure to check out the sequel, Granny Gruesome 2, for outrageous thoughts and observations about life, happiness, and barnyard animals.

    Bad book!

    This book is terrible! I had my teenage sister read it to me and we both peed a little. So now,the book is locked up in the attic and I never read my nursery rhyme book after dark. I have a few words for the people who want to buy this. Don't,you'll never want to read nursery rymes after that!

    Terrible

    Would give it less than one star...the writing is pretty terrible, not cute or quirky.

    You get what you pay for with this one.
