The Wheels on the Bus :
The Traditional Song/Pop-Up

There is no real need for me to "sing" the verse to "The Wheels on the Bus". If you don't know it, simply ask a child and they will sing every verse for you.

What makes this book exceptional is the new twist on verse, the characters and the illustrations AND IT IS A POP UP BOOK !

I feel it my responsibility to warm you that the purchase of this book will require cuddling, singing and a lot of time with your child.

Order Hardcover


Mimicking the Italian Masters, the Renaissance painters, these illustrations are a fine work of art mixed with the rich retelling of the classic tale of the girl with long golden hair who is imprisoned in a tower by a sorceress.

Breathtaking for both children and adults.

A remarkable characterization of Rumpelstiltskin, the strange little man who helps the miller's daughter spin straw into gold for the king (with the condition that she will give her first born child to him)
