An unusual artistic technique--live animals set against painted backdrops--illustrates 16 Mother Goose rhymes. In ``Old Mother Hubbard,'' a shaggy dog and a few props (broom, child's chair, shiny tin can) have been photographed on a painted background that shows a cupboard mounted on a wall and a few frying pans on pegs, so that it looks like a scene in a play. The tone varies: While most of the paintings maintain a hushed, staged quality, ``The Cat and the Fiddle'' includes a cartoonish dish and spoon that remind readers of the artifice involved. As in Anne Geddes's books, the pictures will be more appreciated by adults than children, and possibly more suited to postcards than for rhymes available in other volumes.
