First Second is very proud to present Nursery Rhyme Comics.


Featuring fifty classic nursery rhymes illustrated and interpreted in comics form by fifty of today's preeminent cartoonists and illustrators, this is a groundbreaking new entry in the canon of nursery rhymes treasuries.


From New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast's There Was a Crooked Man to Bad Kitty author Nick Bruel's Three Little Kittens to First Second's own Gene Yang's Pat-a-Cake, this is a collection that will put a grin on your face from page one and keep it there.


Each rhyme is one to three pages long, and simply paneled and lettered to ensure that the experience is completely accessible for the youngest of readers. Chock full of engaging full-color artwork and favorite characters (Jack and Jill! Old Mother Hubbard! The Owl and the Pussycat!), this collection will be treasured by children for years to come."


This copy is in good second hand condition, with some minor shelf wear to the spine.
