Here Comes Mother Goose

By Iona Opie

Joining them is an array of colorful folk you may not have met before: Mrs. Murphy, for instance, and My Aunt Jane; Freda the American Beauty, Bonny Bobby Shaftoe, and Dusty Bill from Vinegar Hill - each of them well worth getting to know, as we re sure you ll agree!
