Read an Excerpt

"Did someone say band?" Turtle shook the ground like a passing train.

TA-TOOM-TA-TOOM TOOM, she thumped.

Tweet-tweedle-dee-deet, twittered Bird.

POP-POP-DOO-WOP, bubbled Fish.

Cha-BOP cha-BOP cha-BOP, croaked Frog.

Chew-up chew-up, chirped Cricket.


"Stop that racket!" shouted Snake. "I said snake band, not sky-skipping, hip-hopping, splish-splashing, flip-flapping, stamp-stomping turtle band."
