Product description

Who can stop Humpty Dumpty from falling off walls and Miss Muffet from screaming at spiders? Wise Mother Goose can! She’s the agony aunt for the nursery rhyme friends, who write to her with their problems. ‘Dear Mother Goose…’, they write in their letters. But what does she answer? Lift the flaps to see! From the breathtaking talents of Nick Sharratt and current Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen, this charming, quirky book is stuffed with jokes, lifting flaps and much-loved characters. Full of common-sense solutions to fairy-tale dilemmas, it’s the perfect way to get children thinking and solving problems too.
