The Queen of Hearts, she found some tarts...so what, as a reform-minded twenty-first century feminist did she do with them? And when Tom, Tom, the Piper's son stole a pig and ran away with it, how would the modern age handle this young delinquent? What has gone wrong today with The House that Jack Built? Will technology-based health care for the elderly take proper care of Old Mother Hubbard? Many of the centuries old Nursery Rhymes reflect the times in which they were first recited. Here they are in a new jacket, rewritten for our own day--still with their traditional blend of humour and satire--a little gentle criticism of the world we live in (with its food fads, bureaucracy, commercialism, racial divides and environmental problems), and here and there a touch of nostalgia. not quite for the nursery but for adults who remember how innocent it once seemed.
