No not so cute in the face but looks happy at heart. My own mother got me into the mother goose art. She had a mother goose book that had the poetry in full. They are much longer in length than most of us know. I found an old book for her at Christmas that had great pictures. We are still looking for one that has all the original poetry, that is older. In the mean time I developed a love for the illistration. Here is one for you mom riding the goose, but since it is melodies, I bet it's not the one you had either. Mother goose looks witch -like but the goose is cute.
