Yo! Little Miss Muffet, Y'all! After You Read This Post, Scroll Down To See The Trailer For Little Miss Muffet. :-)



Iza Trapani’s new picture book, Little Miss Muffet is delightfully done and had this family smiling the day away. The illustrations are so enjoyable and it was such a pleasure to read.

Little Miss Muffet

Sat on a tuffet

Eating her curds and whey.

Along came a spider

Who sat down beside her

And frightened Miss Muffet away.



Poor, poor little Miss Muffet! She just has to get away from that terrifying spider. But how?  The mouse sends her outside, where she runs into a leaping frog, a cackling crow, and other creatures, before she goes back inside again. Iza’s use of in and out, up and down, over and under, beside and behind, makes this story come alive for little ones. 

It’s fun to follow Miss Muffet to see what will happen to her next. Her facial expressions are so authentic that you might think she’s going to pop right out of the story and hide behind you.

Tired of the usual Miss Muffet escapades? Then you must read Iza Trapani’s version that will keep you giggling all day long. The little ones in your life will ask you to read it over and over again! 
Iza  has bookmarks and 'super fun to do' activity sheets to download here. 

Visit Iza's website anytime. She will welcome you with open arms.


Please come back Friday September 20th for a special interview with Iza and enter to win her beautiful rendition of Little Miss Muffet for yourself.

  19. This sounds really charming. It's so nice to see a book with REAL illustrations and not the glossy, computerized ones...

    Kids need to fire their imaginations and art is a wonderful fuel..
