Sandra Boynton and Michael Ford—the team behind Rhinoceros Tap, the Grammy-nominated #1 New York Times bestseller Philadelphia Chickens, and other toe-tapping book-and-CD sets—once again bring great words, great music, great performers to children and vintage children alike.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.And OH! The book! Boynton has filled it with all things 50s and 60s. And, well, golly, it’s so happy and colorful 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. 110,000 copies in print.

Author-illustrator-lyricist Boynton and her musical collaborator Ford (Philadelphia Chickens) are back with another entertaining book-and-CD moosical. This time the inspiration is the shake-and-shimmy doo-wop and rock styles of 1950s and '60s jukebox hits. These toe-tapping, and, yes, finger-snapping, original songs are performed by an accomplished lineup of artists who perfectly capture the era. The catchy lyrics (and musical notation, too) are given prominence, set against the book's humorous, diner-centric scenes featuring Boynton's recognizable animal pals. Tracks include B.B. King singing the hilarious "One Shoe Blues," Gerry and the Pacemakers performing "Mersey Lullaby," Sha Na Na's "Gorilla Song" and the title track as interpreted by crooner Steve Lawrence. Among the other familiar voices are Patti LuPone, Brian Wilson and Davy Jones. Thank goodness no coins are required; every track begs repeated play. All ages. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
