Synopsis

One Man Went to Mow by Rose Impey

Everyone knows the childhood rhyme: One man went to mow, went to mow a meadow...well, this man takes his dog, Spot, who buries his bone - and then goes on to bury more and more outrageous items mostly borrowed bravely from the house of a nearby dog, until the dog finally retaliates and Spot has to find something else to bury...and it's just a step too far!!

Reviews

A favourite song, I'm bound to love this new version in which possibly the only dog I've ever identified with, managing to be both jaunty and harassed... buries a bone, a gnome, a trombone... and the keys to the tractor. Families Magazine Rose Impey and Chris Mould's hysterically funny rendition of One Man Went to Mow describes a child's determined naughtiness when a dog buries too many things in a field. The Times A humorous twist to a cumulative tale to which children love to add their own versions. Colourful and animated pictures capture the imagination and bring the scenes to life. Great fun.

About the Author

Rose Impey

Rose Impey lives in a small village in Leicestershire. She is very well known and highly regarded as a writer of books for children of all ages. It was her experience of telling stories in school as a teacher that led to her starting to write them down. She is a popular visitor to schools and libraries where she reads her work aloud to captivated audiences.

Rose has a deep love and extensive knowledge of fairy and folk tales. For the Fairy Tales series (also available in a collection called The Orchard Book of Fairy Tales) and for the Twice Upon a Time series she thoroughly researched the stories of Grimm, Perrault and Joseph Jacobs before retelling them in her own spirited, direct and authoritative way.

Rose received a great deal of praise for her series Colour Crackers, a series of lively, funny stories, which has the widest possible appeal. Rhode Island Roy was read on Jackanory. She has also written stories for picture books. Joe's Cafe won the Sheffield Children's Book Award.
