A cow can't jump over the moon, can he? A dish runs away with a spoon? Find out how, when, where - in "The Cat and The Fiddle (In Prose)."
Who, in our century, has heard the nursery rhymes told in prose? Enter L. Frank Baum, author of "The Wizard of Oz" (original version) and whose storytelling works like magic to reintroduce us to our old-time favorites. We've added new artwork to the old stories and the result is a brand new world to explore once again.
None of us, whether children or adults, needs an introduction to Mother Goose. Those things which are earliest impressed upon our minds cling to them most tenaciously. The snatches sung in the nursery are never forgotten, nor are they ever recalled without bringing back with them myriads of slumbering feelings and half-forgotten images.We hear the sweet, low voice of the mother, singing soft lullabies to her darling, and see the kindly, wrinkled face of the grandmother as she croons the old ditties to quiet our restless spirits. One generation is linked to another by the everlasting spirit of song; the ballads of the nursery follow us from childhood to old age, and they are readily brought from memory's recesses at any time to amuse our children or our grandchildren.
