Blue Moo by Sandra Boynton


Blue Moo by Sandra Boynton

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 relative newcomer (in this seasoned company) Patti LuPone of Evita fame 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. So roll over, Beethoven - and Lieber and Stoller.Boynton & Ford once again bring great words, great music, great performers to children and vintage children alike. And oh! The book! Boynton has filled it with all things 50s and 60s. And, well, golly, it's so happy and colourful 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.
