Mad Summer Night's Dream

I'm ready for all sorts of midsummer madness.

Ruth Brown 1999

Ruth Brown takes a delirious playground rhyme and turns it into a surreal picture book.

It was midsummer night in winter
and snow was on the ground

When miles away, inside my head,
I heard an eerie sound.

They were staring at each other
while sitting back to back.
One was black with brown stripes,
the brown one's stripes were black.

- it was morning!
What a mad midsummer night's dream.
