As timely today as when they were first written, Eve Merriam's pithy and provocative updates of traditional Mother Goose rhymes comment on social and political issues that still exist. Her satire brings attention to the conditions of our inner cities in a form that has long been a part of our folk tradition. Full color.

Outstanding. I read it because it was on the banned books list and I had never read it. Would be excellent for HS English classes or even at home discussion.
