What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In this reissue of Tomie dePaola’s classic 1981 picture book, an unlucky old woman cares for her dog despite the hilarious mishaps along the way.

Old Mother Hubbard Went to the cupboard To fetch her poor dog a bone

The well-known, rollicking nursery rhyme “Old Mother Hubbard” gets a humorous and luminously illustrated treatment in this engaging read-aloud. Staged like a dramatic Victorian play, Old Mother Hubbard’s quest to feed her dog plays out in beautiful vignettes while other dramas are cleverly hidden in the borders of the page. Young readers will discover something new to love every time they read and will want to revisit the story again and again.
