Join Rufus and his motley canine crew on opening night as they act out fourteen silly, tongue-twisting nursery rhymes. Giggle as Stella plays Wild Wilma Winkles and hula hoops the night away; laugh as Mops acts out frazzled, flustered Dr. Foster's fight against the flu; and hoot as Rufus hilariously hams it up as Handy Spandy, Jack-a-dandy.

Best-selling author/illustrator Iza Trapani has extended each poem, playing with the sounds and rhythms that make language so much fun for young readers and help to build phonemic awareness. Children will also love looking on each page for hidden pictures that begin with the featured letter from the alliterative poems.

Iza Trapani was born in Poland and immigrated to America when she was seven. Upon arrival, her relatives gave her a large Mother Goose collection. As she learned English through those rhymes, she had no idea that someday she would become a best-selling children's book author and illustrator, and would extend many them into books for little ones. Her first book in the series, The Itsy Bitsy Spider has sold over 2.5 million copies, and her Twinkle Twinkle Little Star has sold over 1 million. Her books are widely used in schools in the US and abroad and have won numerous awards. Iza lives in the Hudson Valley of New York, and when not in her studio, she enjoys spending time outdoors- hiking, mountain biking, skiing and kayaking.
