Found this book recently in our school library and fell in love. It requires some knowledge of nursery rhymes (there was some need to fill in the background knowledge of my ELL students), and includes hysterical plays on words.

I actually used it as we were looking at literary text - specifically plot structure. We also looked at character development and dialogue as we working on narratives in writing workshop at this time as well.
