A Pumpkin Princess – Chapter 1

As a reader who’s discerning,
You might be tempted to peruse
A novel (all in verse!) concerning
Some characters sure to amuse:
A love-struck cat who dares to dare;
A Fairy Godmother (with flair!);
A Prince who flees to Massachusetts
To seek the lass whom the glass shoe fits.
If you’re intrigued and would know more
Of a Butler in his prime
Who must sadly stoop to crime,
Then read the tale of Elinor,
A newly minted Cinderella
Who runs off with a diff’rent fella.


Nursery Crimes

What really happened to Jill up on that hill?
Will Jack Sprat be able to maintain his low-fat diet for life?
What was the real story behind Humpty Dumpty’s untimely demise?
Just how many blackbirds can one bake into a pie?
Won’t it make them very angry?
