Description

Listen up, Old MacDonald! Following the charming appeal of Chuck’s Truck, this tale sees Chuck and his barnyard friends forming a band, and boy howdy, these critters can really play! Join the ruckus with Peggy Perry Anderson’s toe-tapping, knee-slapping rhymes and bright illustrations introducing all of the musicians and their different instruments. While Chuck plays the banjo, the goat, Flo, joins him on her mandolin, and all the rest make music too: “With a strum and a hum, a peck and a pluck, they all played a tune while the chicken went, ‘Cluck.’” But what is the matter with Fat Cat Pat? Does she want her own instrument too, or is something else making that cat blue?
