Nursery Rhyme Café • A Play With Songs • Tales from the Fractured Side

by E Gray Simons III

Part of the Series: Tales from the Fractured Side

The folks in the Mother Goose Village are having more problems that usual

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep, Little Miss Muffet has been badly frightened by a spider and Georgie Porgy has been making girls cry all over town. But when Jack B. Nimble and his associate Simple Simon bump into Humpty Dumpty in the Nursery Rhyme Café, the day only becomes more extraordinary. Humpty hasn’t been the same since he had his great fall. In fact, he claims that all the king’s horses and all the king’s men never even tried to put him back together again. Is Humpty just a cracked egg or is Old King Cole not really a merry old soul? It’s just the beginning of a mystery that unfolds as you enter the Nursery Rhyme Café.
