nursery rhymes reimagined

What happens when 50 cartoonists take on Mother Goose? NURSERY RHYME COMICS (First Second 2011) is what happens. See how 50 graphic artists/cartoonists interpret old rhymes with new eyes and new illustrations. Gene Yang reinvents Pat-a-Cake and gives us all an explanation why it is marked with a B. You will never hear Hickory Dickory Dock and not see the totally new concept developed in Stephanie Yue's illustrations. Dave Roman, Jules Feiffer, Raina Telgemeier, Sara Varon, and David Macaluay are among this stellar group of artists who have reconceptualized the rhymes for a new audience. <598>
