Old Mother Hubbard is fed up of her mischievous pup sitting about reading all day, so she suggests that he learn how to play. But then she hears the less than dulcet tones of the flute, the cello, the trombone, the violin and even the bagpipes! What a terrible din! Long-suffering Old Mother Hubbard is besieged by an onslaught of terrible noises! Whatever can she do? This lively and humorous nonsense poem is brilliantly written by John Yeoman and illustrated exuberantly by Quentin Blake.
