Staff Reviews


You've heard of Mother Goose of course.  Spinster Goose is her more demanding sister who specializes in ill-mannered children and improving their dreadful behaviors.  Did you know that Georgie Porgie was a bully? That Jack and Jilly played hooky? And that Little Miss Muffet was a chalk-eater?  These disrespectfully twisted verses are sure to delight and surprise.

— From Spinster Goose

Description


Some children are simply too naughty for Mother Goose to handle. Luckily her sister Spinster Goose knows just how to deal with these uncouth urchins. Her school is home to some world-class troublemakers: they bite and pinch, they talk back and fight--they eat chalk! But brats beware--this isn’t just any school, and Spinster isn't your average goose. Her curious methods will rid these students of their horrendous behaviors…right?

Fans of Mother Goose will delight in these devilishly twisted alternatives to classic rhymes.
