Maybelle wanted SOME drum,
A kettle, snare, not humdrum,
A drum-dee-dum-dee-dum drum,
Oh, any funky fun drum!
But all she has is two sticks - her "tried and trusty true sticks." And so, on tables, chairs, and even her parents' bedroom door, Maybelle takes those sticks and clicks and clacks them, whacks and smacks them - until her sleepy parents shout: STOP! But can Maybelle stop? Even coming face-to-face with eleven toothy crocodiles doesn't deter plucky Maybelle. She keeps her cool - and her beat - charming those reptiles until she finally gets a real drum of her own.
Vibrant art brings a spirited Maybelle to life in this read-aloud gem that pulses with humor and irresistible rhythm and rhyme.
