Book Review: Blue Moo

Rating: ★★★★☆

Boynton and Ford collaborate in this swell collection of silly 1950′s-style songs.  The book accompanying the CD contains a two-page spread for each song, with titles like “Singing in the Shower,” the “Uninvited Parade” which marches through the grocery store and your home, and the obsequious “Your Personal Penguin.”  All of the artists (fictional and real) are featured in bios at the end of the book, with fifties-style glam photos and a list of their musical achievements.  For non-readers, the music is far more enjoyable than the book, but readers will enjoy following along with the lyrics.  This is a boatload of silliness, a wonderful media option if you want to limit television.
