Little Boy Blue
by L. Frank Baum
Mother Goose wrote lots of great rhymes like:
Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn.
The sheep 's in the meadow, the cow 's in the corn;
Where 's the little boy that minds the sheep?
He 's under the haystack, fast asleep!
But we didn’t know much more than that about Little Boy Blue until L. Frank Baum (who also wrote” The Wizard of Oz”) shared the rest of the story in his version of the tale.
