Description

Grammy nominee. #1 New York Times bestseller. And, with 960,000 copies in print, a Recording Industry Association of America Platinum album. What an event What a show It s "Philadelphia Chickens" the catchy and quirky, tuneful and toe-tapping, exuberant, unexpected, and totally endearing family-musical-in-a-book.

Here is a full-color songbook of 17 1/2 illustrated story-poems, and a full-length, fully orchestrated CD of original songs performed by such luminaries as Patti LuPone, Kevin Kline, Meryl Streep, The Bacon Brothers, and Laura Linney, who pleads "Please, Can I Keep It?" it followed me home. / What exactly it is/ I don't know. Also joining in are Eric Stoltz, Scott Bakula, and two Boyntons, including daughter Caitlin McEwan, who performs a piece that every little listener will relate to a love song to the chocolate chip cookies that are just out of reach. With the collaboration of composer Michael Ford (known to Boynton fans from "Rhinoceros Tap"), "Philadelphia Chickens" is that rarest of kids' musical discs one whose inimitable lyrics and music make it as irresistible to parents as it is to their children."
