My Name is Chicken Joe

Overview

These 11 catchy songs written and performed by Trout Fishing in America feature vivid, playfully sophisticated illustrations by accomplished artist Stéphane Jorisch. The title song is an exploration of how names don't always reveal what a child expects: Chicken Joe happens to be a cat, Miss Kitty a dog, and King Kong a parakeet. The duo’s folk-roots repertoire manages to appeal lyrically to children without being condescending.

    Fun Book and CD for kids

    We have been Trout Fishing fans for years, their folk music is fantastic and funny. This book is based on one of their funny kids songs and the illustrations are great! The CD that comes with it is a compilation of some of their best songs. Great fun for all ages!
