"Illustrations by Blanche Fisher Wright are in the public domain. Text is from traditional nursery rhymes. Manufactured in the United States" -- Colophon.

"This book is a small collection of stories taken from the 1916 The Real Mother Goose by Blanche Fisher Wright. Having been in print for almost 100 years--the most recent printing taking place in 1992--The Real Mother Goose has influenced the lives of children over many generations. This book explores the evolution of language and image under the contemporary connotations by obstructing and omitting portions of the original stories. The end goal of this remixed and redacted edition is to create a slightly different narrative calling on the linguistic differences created in the 100 year time span" -- P. [30].

Contents: Jack -- T'other little tune -- Little pussy -- Bedtime -- Coffee and tea -- Baa, baa, black sheep -- The man in our town -- One misty moisty morning -- The little girl with a curl -- Doctor Foster -- Humpty Dumpty -- Cock-a-doodle-doo.
