And when she was goodLast week, a book I won from Peppermint Ph.D. appeared in my mailbox, And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman, and so I kept hearing the lines in my head. I Googled the rhyme for the exact words, and learned that it isn't actually a Mother Goose nursery rhyme. The words are from the poem "There Was a Little Girl" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and the line "she was very, very good" should really be "she was very good indeed". I'm eager to find out why the book has this title.
She was very, very good
But when she was bad
She was horrid!
