Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating a Big Mac and fries
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
'Yuck', it said, 'I prefer flies'.
Nursery rhyme parodies are an ideal introduction to poetry for young children and are excellent for reading aloud or reciting, as the underlying rhyme is usually familiar to the child. Other nursery rhyme parodies in the collection suitable for pre-school and KS1 children include Humpty, a parody of Humpty Dumpty and Muddleheaded Mary, in which Mary didn't have a little lamb, although vegetarian children may object.
Paul Curtis's rude nursery rhymes are suitable for children aged 10 and over. The collection currently features parodies of ten nursery rhymes, including Georgie Porgie Pudding and Pie, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Old Mother Hubbard and Doctor Foster.
