The adventures of Simple Simon by Chris Conover( Book )

3 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents an illustrated version of the simpleton's misadventures. Hidden in the story are characters from sixteen nursery rhymes. Conover embellishes the story of Simple Simon, who met a pieman going to the fair, with a festival of distractions. It is almost impossible to follow the rhyming story from beginning to end, as a caravan of animals-storybook characters-descends on the fair by foot, camel, and ship. Many small subplots are hatched, and readers can spend time happily flipping back and forth to see what's happening to whom
