Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Combining Boynton's lyrics and music with the voices and instruments of today's top country musicians results in a heck of a fun half hour of country music at its best. Now, these aren't your typical chart-topping tunes about unrequited love, but rather entertaining songs about frogs, dogs, trucks, and more. Fitting the style of country music, each song tells a story some sad, some funny, and some just sweet. The simple lines and muted colors of Boynton's clean, uncluttered illustrations further expand the tone of the songs. The book is divided into three parts: Look While You Listen, Sing and Play Along, and Meet the Performers. In the first are the lyrics and art; in the second are the lyrics and the music (just the melody); and in the third are photos of the singers, bands, and instrumentalists, followed by recording credits, book credits, and lastly, instructions for making a folding frog puppet. Naturally, this comes with a CD. Get some scratch guard, because it'll be played a lot.--Petty, J. B. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Boynton (Philadelphia Chickens) returns with a fifth vibrant CD-and-illustrated-songbook collaboration. This time, she embraces country music, inspired (as a note explains) by the soundtrack of her childhood, growing up in the 1950s, singing folk songs at school and watching westerns on TV at home. With longtime songwriting and producing partner Mike Ford and top-notch musicians, including Alison Krauss, Ryan Adams, Dwight Yoakam, and Fountains of Wayne, Boynton presents 12 tunes with some familiar country themes (trucks, dogs, heartache) as seen through a child's or parent's eyes. In the book's "Look While You Listen" section, select lyrics appear with Boynton's signature animal characters. Spot illustrations dot the "Sing and Play Along" pages, which include full lyrics and musical notation. The eponymous "Frog Trouble" is a simultaneously ominous and hilarious send-up of spaghetti western soundtracks, while Brad Paisley's band mimics his lyrics in "Copycat," resulting in some funny musical moments: "Stop it. (Stop it!) No, seriously. (No, seriously)." In the humorously mournful "Heartache Song," Kacey Musgraves channels Patsy Cline as she croons, "Don't they remember-/ all the heartache so deep/ when somebody tells you/ it's time now for sleep." And Ben Folds is pure honky-tonk as he insists, "Some might say the piano is broken,/ but it seems to play for me." Boynton's spot-on humor and the performers' talents ensure an entertaining family outing, while demonstrating just how diverse country can be. Brief profiles of the performers, humorous interstitials about good pet names and how to talk like a cowboy, and a frog-puppet craft round out the fun. Ages 2-up. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
