Meet Daddy Goose — a distant relative of old Mother Goose, the fine-feathered fellow who makes up fantastic stories around her classic nursery rhymes. He's here to fly children through a picture-filled nursery world, telling 12 fresh, funny, five-minute tales behind the cherished poems. Why did Humpty Dumpty sit on that fateful wall? What prompted the Dish and the Spoon to run away together? Daddy Goose explains it all, in a way only he can. With the Goose as a guide, real dads (moms, too!) will be ready with brand-new bedtime stories. A read-aloud collection for the whole family to relish.
