Heavy Words Lightly Thrown The Reason Behind the Rhyme, 2005 Chris Roberts
Heavy Words Lightly Thrown The Reason Behind the Rhyme, 2005 was written by Chris Roberts to show "the seamy and quirky stories behind favorite nursery rhymes."
Nursery rhymes are rarely as innocent as they seem---
- Was Little Jack Horner a squatter?
- Was "Baa Baa Black Sheep" about taxation?
Robert's history, cleverly illustrated with black and white cutouts, makes astonishing connections to contemporary culture as he shows that nursery rhymes are full of hidden meanings and nuances.
