Blue moo : 17 jukebox hits from way back never
|Format:||Print Book 2007|
|Availability:||Available at 7 Libraries 9 of 10 copies|
Sandra Boynton and Michael Ford--the team behind Rhinoceros Tap , the Grammy-nominated #1 New York Times bestseller Philadelphia Chickens , and other toe-tapping book-and-CD sets--bring great words, great music, great performers to children and vintage children alike.
Put a nickel in the jukebox, assuming you can locate a jukebox, and that you remember what a nickel is. Here's legendary Beach Boy Brian Wilson singing lead and 10-part harmonies on "Speed Turtle." The incomparable Neil Sedaka crooning "Your Nose." B. B. King brings you a wistful "One Shoe Blues," Gerry and the Pacemakers offer "Mersey Lullaby," and Broadway great Patti LuPone sings--what else--the "Rabbit Tango." And then there's the hit single from Boynton's Your Personal Penguin sung by the impossibly cute Davy Jones of The Monkees. I mean jeepers, even Sha Na Na is here.
And OH! The book! Boynton has filled it with all things 50s and 60s. And, well, golly, it's so happy and colorful and just terrific, Mister! Grab your saddle shoes, plunk two straws into that swell chocolate malt, and let's twist again like we did last century. 119,000 copies in print.
