For Fans of The Land of Stories
Mother Goose is finally allowing her favorite readers to take a gander into all her secrets from her centuries of adventure.
Who else gossiped with Queen Elizabeth I, taught geography to Napoleon, marched for equal rights with Martin Luther King Jr. and served as Andy Warhol’s muse?
This journey through time with a beloved character from the Land of Stories series will be perfect for new and old fans alike.
If anyone from the Land of Stories deserves their own book, its Mother Goose. Throughout books 2-6, she has given us snippets of her adventures in the Fairy Tales world and the Otherworld, but now we get to learn the whole story.
Mother Goose, in my opinion, is a cross between the Doctor from Doctor Who(because she travels through time, in a way, and is funny and unpredictable)and Sophia Petrillo from The Golden Girls (because you never know whats going to come out of her mouth).
The main thing I love so much about Mother Goose is her role in the Otherworlds history. In the main series books, she was constantly dropping hints of her adventures with historical figures. Examples below:
I remember another time when a bunch of young people went missing we called it Woodstock, but thats a different story.
Like I said to Lewis and Clark, North America aint gonna explore itself. Lets get a move on.
In her memoirs, we get a more detailed version of her influence on historical events.
The only problem I had with this book is that its too short. Its been a while since I read the full series, so I dont remember everything Mother Goose has said, but Im sure shes done more than what is mentioned in this 101-page book. Fortunately, this book has an audio version, so I got to listen to it in Chris Colfers Mother Goose voice.
