Never Play Music Right Next to the Zoo
Publication Date: 22 October 2013
This lively and lyrical jaunt from actor and author John Lithgow comes with a CD of his celebrated song!
Oh, children! Remember! Whatever you may do,
Never play music right next to the zoo.
They'll burst from their cages, each beast and each bird,
Desperate to play all the music they've heard.
A concert gets out of hand when the animals at the neighboring zoo storm the stage and play the instruments themselves in this hilarious picture book based on one of John Lithgow's best-loved tunes.
This package includes a CD of John and an orchestra performing the song!
