This satirical spin on the ancient, much-beloved nursery rhymes of our youth gives familiar characters such as Little Jack Horner and Little Bo Peep a chance to make it in our 21st century. Unfortunately, it's t easy to time travel in leaps and bounds, so you'll enjoy the hilarious and unexpected glitches our Mother Goose friends encounter along the way. Intended for more adult audiences, this collection of free-verse poems delights and surprises with literary references, witty double meaning, and clever irony.
Lois Sonnenberg has enjoyed careers as a Registered Nurse and teacher of English Composition and Literature. She challenged her students to read and write in many genres and share their poetry and fiction by creating classroom publications. She often wrote poetry with and for her students and belongs to an adult writers' group whose members share and critique each others' writing. GRAVE TALES is a reflection of her medical and educational careers, and she had great fun (and a few worries) wondering what might happen to these beloved characters if she brought them into the 21st Century.
