I have long enjoyed Sandra Boynton's cartoons. I have also been a long-time fan of B. B. King.

So what's not to love about a combination of the two. It's something that we and our daughter and out granddaughter will enjoy for quite some time.

I'm a huge fan of cartoonist, author, songwriter (and now video producer) Sandra Boynton and especially of her books containing CDs. (Check out "Philadelphia Chickens", "Dog Train" and "Blue Moo") One of the tracks on "Blue Moo" (a song written by Boynton and sung by the legendary B.B. King) now has its own book, and this is it.

The book itself has the story and great Boynton illustrations. Then there is the sheet music. But in the front is a 14-minute DVD with the four-minute "music video" Boynton and her songwriting partner Michael Ford made during a three-hour slot of time with King in Las Vegas. (You'll learn all about this in the seven-minute "making of" documentary also on the DVD.

Boynton has a wonderful "tongue in cheek" sense of humor and it shows up EVERYWHERE in this book and DVD. When you get it, read the list of credits - and even the name of her production company - and you'll see what I mean.

To make this even better, look at the list price. Workman (the publisher) apparently wants everyone to get this and priced it low. And it's a hardbound book with high quality values too.

I can't wait for the next Boynton/ Workman multimedia project. The other CDs are constantly in my CD player rotation. Start here and then check out the others.

where their shoes, etc. were. I knew this would be good -- it's BB King for heaven's sake!! As soon as I listen to it a few more times, I'll send it to my grandchildren.

We all love this book/dvd. I think my daughter watched it about 10x times today. After each play, she puts her index finger up and says, "1 more?" The color and feel of the movie is warm and comforting. The socks are very cool cats. I highly recommend this book to anyone, it's a great introduction to the blues for any child.

My Three year old grandson loves these CDs. I'm so glad I found them. He knows all the words and loves to sing along.

A great way to introduce a young listener to the Blues, and how cool that it's played by BB King. Sandra Boynton has another success. This book was discussed on CBS's Sunday Morning, and I was convinced to buy it, and several other Boynton books.

This book and the music and musicians are just awesome for youngsters. It gives them a love for music and gives them thought with the lyrics that are not exactly childish but speaks to them as well. I enjoyed them as much as the kids!

I am a music teacher and saw the video first on youtube. I loved it so much that I bought the book and dvd. It is the perfect venue to expose children to the blues, a legendary artist and clever puppetwork!
