Quite a few of the comics are faithful interpretations of each rhyme, such as The Itsy Bitsy Spider. There's a spider, there's a spout and he gets all washed out, the only addition is that he's carrying luggage. Cute stuff! Jack Be Nimble is mad because he jumped over a candlestick - the last frame shows a decidedly red bottom! Solomon Grundy is a bit creepy, and Croak said the Toad is just beautifully illustrated by Laura Park. I especially liked One Two Buckle My Shoe by Dave Roman. It's count the clones time! I have far too many favorites to describe them all, but whether they are straightforward interpretations, or if the artist has placed a new spin on the old rhyme, these are all wonderful ways to introduce a child who may be somewhat older to some classic rhymes they might have missed out on during their toddler days.
This is a great book for any child's personal collection and will perhaps be best suited for households with a wide range of ages.Read more ›
Fifty artists are handed a nursery rhyme apiece. The goal? Illustrate said poem. Give it a bit of flair. Put in a plot if you have to. So it is that a breed of all new comics, those of the nursery ilk, fill this book. Here at last you can see David Macaulay bring his architectural genius to "London Bridge is Falling Down" or Roz Chast give "There Was a Crooked Man" a positive spin. Leonard Marcus offers an introduction giving credence to this all new coming together of text and image while in the back of the book editor Chris Duffy discusses the rhymes' history and meaning.Read more ›
There is another title that we also got called Fairytale Comics. It's the same type of book - old stories with new comic book style illustrations. We liked it also, but the nursery rhyme book is my favorite. http://www.amazon.com/Fairy-Tale-Comics-Extraordinary-Cartoonists/dp/1596438231/ref=pd_bxgy_14_img_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=184XRV6R5DJWEYE35ZN2
