ABOUT THIS BOOK

A hilarious tale of two nursery-rhyme heroes on the run, from the award-winning creator of the Traction Man series!
 
When the cow jumped over the moon, the dish ran away with the spoon . . . to seek fame and fortune in twentieth-century America. This is the never-before-told story of their exciting adventures out in the big world. How this famous nursery rhyme couple learns that crime doesn’t pay—and love conquers all—is a treat for the whole family!
 
Hand this to fans of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s The True Story of the Three Little Pigs or The Stinky Cheese Man.
 
“This inventive tale of true love will sustain many re-readings by readers of all ages.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred
 
Hey-diddle-delightful.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred
