Abstract:

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.
