    Its not the book I would recommend for introducing Mother Goose tales to a reader, but I can definitely see a very clear place for it on the Mother Goose shelf at the library. This playful, re-nurseried, re-rhymed, twist on classic Mother Goose tales is a great book for readers with a familiarity with the classic versions of Mother Goose rhymes/5. Mother Goose is the most recognized anonymous "author" of popular children's nursery rhymes. Credit for her fabrication goes to Charles Perrault, the creator of the fairy tale genre and first to name her in a book which became known by its subtitle, Tales of My Mother Goose ().. Nursery rhymes have been retold and illustrated in countless versions over the centuries, so American Literature.

    The Fox is a traditional folk song (Roud ) from is also the subject of at least two picture books, The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night: an old song, illustrated by Peter Spier and Fox Went out on a Chilly Night, by Wendy earliest version of the song was a Middle English poem, dating from the 15th century, found in the British Museum. When the molly came out, there stood a fox on the threshold. “Good evening, and thank you for last time,” said the fox. “Thank you for last time,” replied the girl. “Is the widow Fox home?” he asked. “Yes, she is grieving for her husband, dead; and weeps her nose both sore and red,” said the girl.

      Sister Goose swam in the pond, happy as could be. Now and then, she ducked her head down to nibble a little bit here, and nibble a little bit there. She took no more than her fill of those succulent underwater plants, for she knew that the pond belonged to everyone. In about , John Newbery, an English publisher, adopted the Mother Goose name for a collection of mostly traditional rhymes. The book was called Mother Goose's Melody: or Sonnets for the Cradle. and changed the focus from fairy tales to nursery rhymes. Again, there was no explanation of who the real Mother Goose was.
