Beloved author-illustrator Ruth Brown offers an intriguing interpretation of a traditional playground nonsense rhyme. Readers are drawn into a bewildering place where nothing is quite as it seems: birds blossom, flowers sing, and two cats-back to back-stare each other down. But how can this be? Anything can happen in the topsy-turvy world of dreams, and this wildly meandering dream-story is no exception.Readers will find their tongues twisting and minds bending as they explore the puzzling wordplay, while the beautiful and mysterious illustrations offer a delicious visual feast. In a mad and crazy world where snow falls in midsummer, you never know what's going to happen next!Ruth Brown is known for her watercolor-and-acrylic paintings of animals, children, and the English countryside. She is the popular illustrator of many picture books for children, including The Shy Little Angel, Toad, The Ghost of Greyfriar's Bobby, Ben's Christmas Carol, and Cry Baby (all Dutton).
