Description

A rhyming, vibrantly illustrated picture book based on the folk song of seven soldiers.

Ed Emberley won the 1968 Caldecott Medal for his bold illustrations for Barbara Emberley’s jaunty adaptation of the cumulative folk song about soldiers who build a magnificent cannon and Drummer Hoff, who fires it off.

Praise For Drummer Hoff

"The spark comes from the...wildly colored woodcuts always under control until the grand and glorious blastoff."
