A collection of 41 folk rhymes, taunts, and insults that have been chanted, sung, and shouted by generations of children throughout the United States. ‘Children will appreciate the humor of the rhymes and the illustrations. Another I Can Read hit.’ —SLJ.
Alvin Schwartz is known for a body of work of more than two dozen books of folklore for young readers that explores everything from wordplay and humor to tales and legends of all kinds. His collections of scary stories—Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Scary Stories 3, and two I Can Read books, In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories and Ghosts!—are just one part of his matchless folklore collection.
