Old Mother Hubbard's poor dog just wants a bone in this giggle-along board book.

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to get her dog a bone. But when she finds there's none, she goes shopping instead! She buys some shoes, a wig, a coat - everything but the bone her hungry dog craves. But the bone-crazy dog can't just wait - no, not when not when he can wash the cat or dance a jig.

Mother Hubbard and her dog's antics get sillier and sillier, until finally everyone's happy. Any dog-lover will relate to the hilarious things that dogs do when asked to wait, and this is the perfect example, in a sturdy board book that is perfect for small hands.

Jane Cabrera's Story Time gives favorite nursery rhymes and songs a new toddler-friendly twist. These interactive favorites feature bold, bright, illustrations and catchy refrains. Don't miss other fun titles including Over in the Meadow, Rock-a-bye Baby, and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 2-4. The old nursery rhyme reaches new heights of nonsense in Cabrera's bright, energetic double-page pictures. Yes, the cupboard is bare, so Mother Hubbard picks up her purple purse and goes shopping to try to make it up to the poor dog. Each time she returns home, she finds him up to all kinds of mischief. The big, close-up pictures, with thick black lines and blazing color combine slapstick and coziness, whether the dog is washing the cat or reading the news or wearing his new blue wig. As in Cabrera's Over in the Meadow (2000), the chanting rhymes and exuberant illustrations make a great read-aloud for young preschoolers. They will enjoy the switch each time from Mother Hubbard's silliness in the store to the dog's trouble at home, until, finally, the pooch discards all the stuff and gets his great big white bone, "Bow-Wow!" Dog-lovers will also have fun with the playful endpapers, where Cabrera has added hats, purses, wigs, wings, and haloes to pictures of 15 dogs she names and loves. --Hazel Rochman"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cabrera's tempera illustrations always virtually bubble over with high spirits: her bold, saturated colors, broad brushstrokes and luscious, wet-paint surfaces bring to mind an especially creative and satisfyingly messy episode of finger painting. Although this familiar rhyme does not offer her the abundant possibilities of her Over in the Meadow, the title character comes across as a sweet, bright-eyed granny. The exuberant orange-and-white pooch companion comically rides a goat that resembles a bucking bronco and reads the news with ?lan. Ages 3-6. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
