       Hidden Objects List



Goody Hepzibah weaves history and genealogy into familiar rhymes and spins a sinister tale. Goody brings severe consequences for each character’s actions and lets them fall where they may. Secret messages in the pictures and text add to the fun. These are not your typical, sweet grandmother’s nursery rhymes and fairy tales.
