Old Mother Hubbard
A Nursery Rhyme
Drawings by David A. Johnson
1998 Hardcover Book
This familiar old nonsense poem has caused delighted laughter in generations of children who have chanted it merrily and to whom old Mother Hubbard has become a happy companion.
To make up for the bare cupboard she discovers when she goes to get a bone for her dog, old Mother Hubbard sets out to find him something he will enjoy instead of a bone. "She went to the hatter's / To buy him a hat, / But when she came back / He was feeding the Cat." Another time, "She went to the barber's / To buy him a wig, / But when she came back / He was dancing a jig." At the conclusion of this amusing game, Dame and Dog bow low to each other.
David A Johnson, a gifted artist who has always loved this narrative rhyme, has created a lovely new interpretation in watercolors of "Old Mother Hubbard and Her Dog." Today's children will warmly welcome this comically absurd nonsense rhyme.
