PreSchool-Grade 2—A whimsical look at the world of Mother Goose. Little Miss Muffet, cute as a button, is tired of the same old, same old. Looking to escape the drudgery of her life, she seeks excitement in other rhymes. True to the old adage, "the grass is always greener," a wide-eyed Miss M. tries, with little success, to find a place in the "Grand Old Duke of York," "Jack and Jill," "Hickory, Dickory, Dock," "Ding, Dong, Bell," "Hey Diddle, Diddle," "Sing a Song of Sixpence," and "The Queen of Hearts." Witty prose and updated interpretations are complemented by Williamson's exuberant illustrations. Colorful, comical, and energetic, the characters race through the pages to the story's end, in which sweet Miss Muffet concludes that she no longer needs a change. That is, until a certain spider comes along…—Trish Sabini, Ossining Public Library, NY
