An irresistible treasure-trove ... The way these gossipy little rhymes give us a snapshot of everyday life in centuries gone by is enchanting. You'll never look at nursery rhymes again in the same way (Daily Mirror)
The history behind nursery rhymes is not only highly specific but often splendidly grim. This book is a reminder of the riches below the surface: characters, jokes, events and stories (The Times)

It is written in an easy style and is accessible to all. The sort of book which is easy to pick up and put down as it has short chapters. It is the sort of book, whose information you feel the need to share or read aloud.
What is still a mystery is why the rhymes have lasted in some cases for two or three centuries.
