This expanded version of the traditional rhyme shows what happens to the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker when they go fishing in their tub.



Rating: Five out of fiveThe butcher, the baker and candlestick maker are out on a journey to catch some supper for themselves and their wives. The three are all friends, but when they get into a little trouble on their boat ride, will they stick together to the end? What a funny rendition of the old rhyme of these three characters! Author Kin Eagle does a wonderful job telling this tale, and also illustrator Rob Gilbert does equally great depicting these guys. A sure fire hit for the young ones in your life! —, Lisa
