The Cow Tripped Over the Moon: A Nursery Rhyme Emergency
We all know that nursery rhymes are dangerous things - you could get trampled by all the king's horses, have your nose pecked off by blackbirds, or even fall off a bough as you sleep! Luckily, the Storyland Ambulance Crew are on hand to patch everyone up. Jeanne Willis's whimsical text works perfectly with Joel Stewart's hilarious illustrations in this rollicking twist on classic nursery rhymes.
