Beloved rhymes, drolly envisioned

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To fetch her poor dog a bone;
But when she got there
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor dog had none.

With deadpan hilarity, Marshall has rounded up some of the usual suspects of nursery-rhyme notoriety – Little Boy Blue, Old Mother Hubbard – and introduced a supporting cast of cats, mice, geese, pigs, dogs, and a couple of chickens to join in the fun.
