Welcome to Mother Goose Parodies. When I set a goal to write a book of parodies during the lockdown, I assumed there would be one book and one virus. But as time went on, I realized that I was only writing Vol. 1 of Mother Goose Chronicles the Coronavirus! Like you, I longed for this pandemic to be over. But it continues. I'm still sheltering in place (by choice), now worrying about variants.
Now that I have published the first volume, I am avidly working with my illustrator on Vol. 2. It will include President Trump's bout with Covid-19, poems about the vaccines, the opening of the economy, the openings of schools and sports, and the challenges faced by President Biden as he leads the war on the coronavirus.
"These poems and illustrations help us all put a smile on our face and add a touch of good humor to an otherwise sad, sad, tale. Mother Goose would be proud."

"Many new spins have been taken on old themes during the pandemic and this updating of the Mother Goose stories, by my much be-loved relatives, is an addition to the collection, with a political spin!"
