Synopsis

Jack and Jill went up the hill;
it took them quite a while.
Jack looked into the well and screamed,
"A giant crocodile!"


It's not easy to fetch a pail of water when you're faced with a hungry croc who isn't in the mood to share. What are Jack and Jill to do? Their father's disappeared and their mother doesn't believe in talking crocodiles, but could a plumber help them? Or Bessie, their pet cow? Perhaps if they can come up with the right wish, Jack and Jill might get their water . . . and what they really need, too!

With vivid illustrations, Daniel Kirk expands the classic nursery rhyme and introduces us to two plucky siblings who won't let anything keep them down.

Even the kitchen sink is broken, so their mother carelessly sends them up the hill to fetch a pail of water: "It's true your father vanished/ when I sent him out for water..../ But that was quite a while ago!/ Run along, my son and daughter!"
