From the vast and colorful imagination of Mary Engelbreit springs a Mother Goose world bursting with warmth and humor. All the favorite time-honored characters are here -- Little Bo-Peep, Humpty Dumpty, Old King Cole, Jack and Jill, and many, many more, along with such treats as a mouse running up the clock, piggies going to market, and children dancing round the mulberry bush.
As complete as can be with one hundred rhymes in all, this is truly a book to treasure. It's a masterful collection of the adorable, the zany, and the beautiful that will be cherished for generations.

Lynn Redgrave has had an extraordinary career, encompassing two Oscar® nominations, two Tony® nominations and one Emmy® nomination. She has starred in such films as Gods and Monsters, Shine and Georgy Girl.From AudioFile:
Lynn Redgrave is an inspired choice as narrator of this expansive collection of 100 Mother Goose rhymes. Her expressive voice brings to life all the well-known characters (Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Little Bo-Peep) while introducing you to a few you may not have met (like Little Poll Parrot and Terrence McDiddler). She brings drama and dignity even to the shortest and silliest verses, which are interspersed with occasional gentle guitar music. If you are listening with little children, you'll want to skip the academic introduction read by Leonard S. Marcus (critic of children's literature). It stands in humorous contrast to the short and snappy rhymes themselves (averaging 10-15 seconds) that follow. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
