Early 90's Computer Game  
I'm trying to remember a computer game I played as a kid in the early 90's. I don't have many memories because I was so little. I think that it was based around fairy tales and nursery rhymes and you had to do various things for various people or maybe it was just things Mother Goose asked you to do. You had to search the land for various items like Puss' boots, a watering can, those are pretty much the only items I can remember. It wasn't a side scroller, you were able to walk whichever way you wanted. I think the game took place outdoors. I could be way off and my memories might be shot but I thought I'd ask anyway. Thanks!

90's fairy tale game
hey, you guys were pretty helpful before. i was wondering if by any chance you knew the name of a game very similar to mixed up mother goose. this game was based on fairy tales...it starts in a library and this girl gets sucked into a book where all the fairy tales are mixed up and she has to sort them out before she can go home, stuff like finding the pumpkin for cinderella and the apple for the prince in snow white. the good guy in it is a dragon and the bad guy is a troll looking thing. i'm dying to find out the name of this game...i'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me here, thank you :-)

Re: 90's fairy tale game
YES. I was googling that game and came across this thread. I'm looking for that name too. Not mixed up mother goose though. Bookworm or bookend is the dragon's name.
