Top Pick. Fifteen original songs are featured on this unique children's recording. The "seriously silly" lyrics were written by children's book author, Sandra Boynton, and music by Michael Ford. The result is fabulously silly fare with loads of class.

The songs in this hilarious collection range from an ode to lonely peas to a celebration of plumply pleasing pigs ("fabulous swine"). We love the calypso song in which the singer prefers Alaska to the tropics ("I got the sand in my hair and the sand in my face/I think I got the sand most every place"). Kids will adore "Barnyard Dance" in which they're told to "trot with the turkey, leap with the frog", amongst other things. There's plenty for caregivers to enjoy as well. Case in point: "Turkey Love Song" in which a turkey attempts to woo the different birds on the farm.

The liner notes include full lyrics as well as trademark Sandra Boynton illustrations.
