Publisher's Summary

The wonderful Little Voice of Jane Horrocks brings this exclusive downloadable audiobook collection of your favourite childhood nursery rhymes out of the dust covers of Mother Goose's books and into strange and merry life.
The nursery rhymes that make up our collection are taken from the original Mother Goose rhymes. They are the classics from our childhood, with all the original verses and all the parts of rhymes that one usually hums over due to having forgotten the words. They are therefore full of wonderful and merry memories for most of us and discoveries for the rest of us. That being said, they are also the province of the childhood of the past and are therefore somewhat surprising in their brutality, their honesty and at times their frightening lack of political correctness!
We are given to worrying greatly over the television our children watch and the violence they are exposed to in the modern era. These rhymes are an amusing reminder of the fairly harsh nature of childhood before it began to be agreed that childhood should be protected. Children, of course, love them, but these rhymes should probably contain a parental warning!
