Publishers Weekly, 2007-10-29 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.
