Nursery Rhymes Explained: Doctor Foster went to Gloucester

  • Sally Delahooke

The idea behind this project was to take something simple and make it complicated. Nursery Rhymes Explained is a series of illustrated books, that take well known children’s rhymes into the modern age and highlight current issues within them. The first book of the series; ‘Doctor Foster went to Gloucester’, explores the backstory of Doctor Foster, why he was travelling to Gloucester and the flash flooding that occured there.
