A hilarious tale of two nursery-rhyme heroes on the run, from the award-winning creator of the Traction Man series!
When the cow jumped over the moon, the dish ran away with the spoon . . . to seek fame and fortune in twentieth-century America. This is the never-before-told story of their exciting adventures out in the big world. How this famous nursery rhyme couple learns that crime doesn’t pay—and love conquers all—is a treat for the whole family!
Hand this to fans of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s The True Story of the Three Little Pigs or The Stinky Cheese Man.
