Light-hearted illustrations accompany this zany version of the familiar nursery rhyme about an old woman and her playful dog as she sets off on a wacky shopping spree to buy him everything but the bone he craves.

Jane Cabrera has written and illustrated numerous picture books that have been published all over the world. She has young children of her own with whom she loves to share nursery songs. She is a graphic designer and artist. Some of her titles for Holiday House includes "Mommy, Carry Me Please!", "Old Mother Hubbard", "Old Macdonald Had A Farm".From Booklist:
Ages 2-4. The old nursery rhyme reaches new heights of nonsense in Cabrera's bright, energetic double-page pictures. Yes, the cupboard is bare, so Mother Hubbard picks up her purple purse and goes shopping to try to make it up to the poor dog. Each time she returns home, she finds him up to all kinds of mischief. The big, close-up pictures, with thick black lines and blazing color combine slapstick and coziness, whether the dog is washing the cat or reading the news or wearing his new blue wig. As in Cabrera's Over in the Meadow (2000), the chanting rhymes and exuberant illustrations make a great read-aloud for young preschoolers. They will enjoy the switch each time from Mother Hubbard's silliness in the store to the dog's trouble at home, until, finally, the pooch discards all the stuff and gets his great big white bone, "Bow-Wow!" Dog-lovers will also have fun with the playful endpapers, where Cabrera has added hats, purses, wigs, wings, and haloes to pictures of 15 dogs she names and loves. Hazel Rochman
