Twisted Nursery Rhymes

A Thrill of the Hunt Anthology

They've lulled us to sleep and soothed us when we were children.
They've offered teaching points and more.
But are they all they seem to be?
Are there hidden messages in our Nursery Rhymes?
From The Cow Jumped Over the Moon to Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater, these authors take some of our favorite nursery rhymes and twist them into stories you want to run from.
Keep the light on and don't read these to your kids.
