The Great Nursery Rhyme Disaster by David Conway
"Little Miss Muffet is bored!" And there goes a perfectly good nursery rhyme that gets jumbled with The Grand Old Duke of York, Jack & Jill, Hey Diddle Diddle, and several more traditional nursery rhymes. Detailed illustrations by Melanie Williamson are clever, quirky and done in bold colors.

The Ugly Duckling retold and illustrated by Rachel Isadora. A thoroughly charming Hans Christian Anderson tale set in the wilds of Africa. Isadora does a breathtaking job of portraying the sad little swan mistake for an ugly duckling. Her collage gets better every time. From the mean ducks to the unknown flock of birds glimmering in the sunset this story is retold beautifully.
