It's a musical menagerie! Hey diddle diddle, the cat plays the fiddle, the cow
. . . plays the silver trombone! Eve Bunting's fresh take on a familiar rhyme, enlivened by Mary Ann Fraser's whimsical illustrations, offers spread after spread of exuberant animals showcasing their musical talents. From the camel jamming on the trumpet to the whale keeping the beat on the drums, young readers will relish their front-row seat to this delightful animal orchestra.
