The Original 1958 Caedmon Recording. Delight in this classic rendition with the splendid voice-characterizations (accompanied with instrumental ensemble) created by Cyril Ritchard, Boris Karloff, and Celeste Holm. Perhaps no other Mother Goose before or since best captures the genuine spirit of these early rhythmic wonders, produced with charm and wit and with always a surprise in store for both young and old alike.

Zen folk, too, will appreciate the zen-like audio-visual impressions that quell the anxious mind by making a parody out of samsara (the ebb and flow of life and death), assuring one not to take it all too seriously, as this little gem turns the usual rules of perception upside-down. Who could ever forget good ol' Mother Hubbard with her little dog anthropomorphizing into every human mannerism imaginable, only at the end recollecting its True Nature (Bow-wow!) once again.

Relax, enjoy, and recollect that lost golden epoch as these ageless mantras transport you into regions beyond the sands of time.

Special thanks for the following Illustrators:

Frank Adams; Amelia Butter; Marguerite deAngeli; Robert Baird; Sherry Holder Hunt; Steve Morrison; Margaret Tarrant; Carolyn Trant; Richard Svensson; Blanche Fisher Wright.

Special thankfulness, too, in honor of the Dharma Protectors.

Dedicated to the Child in all of us.
