About the Story


Before the clock strikes one, a mother mouse must search the house for her two missing sons. But she’d better watch out for the cat!

Do you know the real story behind the Hickory Dickory Dock nursery rhyme?

Following success with The Cow Tripped Over the Moon, author Tony Wilson and illustrator Laura Wood are back, with a second story that's another funny twist on a well-known children's rhyme. 

Gloriously detailed illustrations, combined with exciting plot twists and turns, and wonderful read-aloud words, make this the perfect storytime tale. 

Hickory Dickory Dash is a delightful rhyming romp, read hilariously by actor, singer and Play School legend, Jay Laga'aia.
