A new take on a popular favourite by a new writer. A gag a minute (or more!) from a writer renowned for his quirky sense of humour.
Mother Goose is due to be evicted from her cottage by local squire Blackburner, though her son Jimmy is head-over-heels in love with the Squire's daughter Jill. MG acquires a goose called Petunia which she soon discovers to her amazement lays golden eggs. Now fabulously wealthy, Mother Goose enters into a pact with evil wizard Balthazar that in return for the Goose, she will receive youth and beauty. However in the end she finds that happiness is more than wealth or youthful beauty and everything turns out well (of course).
