Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Baxter Barret Brown loves his bass fiddle so much that he can't bear to be parted with it. So he turns it into a bicycle, and a boat, and a house . . . then realizes his bass fiddle bicycle boat beachfront bungalow no longer plays music. Time to simplify back to the basics. Obviously a labor of love, this is a first book for Texas oil worker and bass player Tim McKenzie. Included with the book is a CD of McKenzie playing bass and singing four kid-friendly songs he composed, as well as narrating the story itself. A sheet music pamphlet is also tucked in should any of his readers be tempted to take up the instrument. Charles Shaw's watercolors are bright and busy, and his large, hand-drawn letters fly across the pages like reverberations from a plucked bass string. 2004, Blue Sky Press, Ages 2 to 6.
