Old Monster Goose has turned Mother Goose’s world of nursery rhymes inside out! Here she presents twenty-five deliciously disgusting new poems, filled with rodents and maggots, zombies and ghouls, spiders and, of course, monsters. Remember King Cole? That terrible troll washes his feet in the toilet bowl. And poor Mistress Mary, her garden’s quite scary--its killer potatoes ate all her tomatoes and now are out looking for Mary!
From the bestselling author of Antarctic Antics: A Book of Penguin Poems and the popular illustrator of the Zack Files comes a zany book that has everyone talking:

“Terribly tasteless. Downright gross.”--Mother Goose
“Somebody, help!”--Mistress Mary

Sierra invites a sing-along in "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Slug" and "The itsy-bitsy spider/ Climbed up the warthog's snout," and she turns a song of sixpence into an even less appetizing yarn: "Sing a song of sea slime, sewer gas, and sludge./ Four and twenty wharf rats dipped in mocha fudge."
