Rate this:
Jumping over the moon is fine as long as you donand end up needing cow-size bandages. And having a blackbird peck off your nose can leave a person very sore indeed. Led along by bright, humorous illustrations and an energetic rhyming text, little readers will have fun guessing who the next Storyland victim might be, following hints like, "Who could be covered in egg?" and "Who went up and tumbled down?" Look out, here comes the ambulance!

It's quite clever idea. I actually didn't recognise a couple of the rhymes it referenced though so my son was a bit unsure of a few, but overall it's easy to read aloud, catchy and a whole new way to look at the nursery rhymes of the past. Humpty dumpty and the cow tripping over the moon were cool, and the dish and spoon on each page is something else to follow/find on the page for young kids. I'm still trying to explain pop goes the weasle to my son from the last page....I can't remember the song except for that one line and that is totally unacceptable (he's 3) so maybe brush up on the nursery rhymes, our son loved the baby in the bough falling in to the compost heap and I actually remembered that one so sang it to him while he went to sleep after reading the book, it was handy that night!
