There Was an Old Woman by Jessy Randall

Poetry. In this rollicking collection of prose poems, Jessy Randall brings new life to the women of Mother Goose's fairy tales. With enthralling wit, THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN delights in unexpected portrayals of Mother Goose's classic protagonists: old women from a variety of towns across the English landscape who live in shoes, who sell cows and sometimes their children. Randall's new fairy tales inhabit a world simultaneously old and modern, inviting us to consider the parallels between the lives of Mother Goose's women and the lives of women today.
