On the Morn of Mayfest

On the Morn of Mayfest

Illustrated by: Marla Frazee
For Ages: 4 - 8
There once was a lass
with hair like a nest
who walked out in her sleep
on the morn of Mayfest.
     And what happens to this lass? She is pursued by a dove, and then a huntsman who fixes on the dove, a mouse who frightens the huntsman, a cat who chases the mouse, and so on—until an entire village is caught up in a spontaneous Mayday parade! Written in a delightfully catchy rhyme, this story is a treat to read aloud. Onlookers will love following the merry band of unforgettable characters that grows larger and more ridiculous with every turn of the page.
