Overview

Critically acclaimed artist Scott Cook brings his spirited, classic style to the Mother Goose menagerie! From Little Miss Muffet to Old Mother Hubbard and a whole range of unforgettable characters in between, this lavish yet affordably priced anthology harks back to the best-loved nursery rhyme collections of the past while possessing a unique flavor. Expressive portraits, richly rendered vignettes, and exuberant, parade-like scenes that creatively group verses together—all invite readers to curl up in a cozy chair and enter the timeless and utterly satisfying world of Cook, whose oil paintings Booklist has described as "suffused with a golden glow...soft as a kiss, yet filled with energy." Over 60 familiar and lesser-known rhymes are included in this visual feast.

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Yet another collection of Mother Goose rhymesthis one, however, stands out for its animated artwork. The verses are thoughtfully arranged in topical groupings; less well-known selections are interspersed with familiar favorites. The drawings are so playful and expressive that rogues, simpletons, and other well-loved characters fairly leap off the pages. Rendered in oils in muted shades of predominantly lavender and brown, each small vignette and full-page painting overflows with humorous details of village and countryside. A wide range of emotions is portrayed, and the characters are vibrantly brought to life. A fresh offering.Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
