A little mouse runs up a clock, only to run down again and surprise the the inhabitant of the house, in a book that takes the text from the traditional nursery rhyme and adds illustrations that augment the story.
Keith Baker displays his trademark flair for color, movement, and rhythm in this vibrant adaptation of the familiar nursery rhyme "Hickory Dickory Dock." A companion to his acclaimed Big Fat Hen, this twist on an old favorite features some serious antics on the part of a busy little mouse. As a huge grandfather clock strikes each hour from one o' clock in the afternoon to midnight, a different animal passes by, and the mouse has a funny interaction with each of them. With counting, telling time, and a cozy bedtime ending to engage them, children will be chiming in for repeated readings.
From one to five, count along as the little mouse runs up and down the clock in the classic nursery rhyme "Hickory, Dickory Dock." Then meet "Little Boy Blue" as he’s fast asleep in the haystack. Sing along with..."Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such sport, and the dish ran away with the spoon." Also includes the following favorite nursery rhymes: "Itsy Bitsy Spider," "Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake" and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Young readers will enjoy all six classic nursery rhymes which are adorably illustrated.
