...expands knowledge, stretches the imagination, tickles the funnybone and effortlessly inspires audience participation. --The Washington Post
Its funny, its touching, its hip. Its music children fall in love with the first time they hear it, and its music adults can still enjoy even after the kids have played it 700 times. Musically excellent, lyrically delightful ... perfect for classrooms, family listening or as a gift for that special child. --Heartsong Review
