An entertaining addition to school and library collections. --Booklist
The text and lyrics consist of cleverly fractured Mother Goose rhymes that add up to a 10-song musical. The illustrations are adorable, and the musical accompaniment is sprightly and beautifully produced." --Lilla Weinberger, Readers' Books, Sonoma, CA --Children's Book Sense 76
Book and CD combos are becoming more and more popular and I think in part to one of the first books (if not the first) published by Tortuga Press, Jazz Fly (don t have it or know it? GO GET IT!!). I love well done book/cd combos since combining words and music is so great for our pre-readers (and our readers) and has children memorizing entire books because songs are easy to memorize. Wooleycat s is presented as a children s stage presentation of nursery rhymes, each song (and skit) beginning with the original nursery rhyme and then expanding it. For instance, here s the chorus to Humpty Dumpty Pull...yourself together, Humpty! (When you tumble, trip and fall.) Pull...yourself together Humpty! (When you re feeling beat.) Turn your sunny side up and scramble to your feet! I wish I could convey the toe tapping, finger snapping spirited award winning (this was originally released in 1992 as a CD only) music that goes with the text. A hit with all ages. --Sharon Levin --Book Corner

The songs have a way of creeping into your sub-conscious, and several times, my husband laughed at me as he realized that I was humming "Mmh, berry pie" or "Hey, Wee Willie Winkie, yes we're sound asleep." I plan on buying this book to give as a birthday present to some of my daughter's friends. Well done!

Puts a new twist on nursery rhymes with songs. It suggested on the inside to play it in the car and my kids loved it. Soon, my son had started singing along to the rhymes. Read morePublished on December 11, 2013 by Zuri
