Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter, Paul and Mary became famous for their ability to convey powerful personal and political messages through a repertoire of songs that resonated with millions of Americans in the 1960s. Their debut album, released in 1962, remained in the Top 10 for ten months, and the Top 20 for two years. Their first hit single, "Lemon Tree" was swiftly followed by "If I Had a Hammer," which became an anthem of the Civil Rights movement and was performed by the trio at the 1963 March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his legendary "I Have a Dream" speech. Their classic song, "Puff, The Magic Dragon," has been a favorite of children for almost fifty years, and the book version was a number one bestseller. Over a span of more than fifty years, Peter, Paul and Mary touched the lives and hearts of tens of millions of people, won five Grammy Awards, produced thirteen Top 40 hits, and received eight gold and five platinum albums.

Review:

"Davenier's (the Very Fairy Princess books) fluid artwork illustrates the lyrics to Peter, Paul, and Mary's 1962 recording, 'It's Raining.' When rain interrupts a group of kids' outdoor fun, they head indoors to play hide-and-seek, while one child reads in bed with the ailing 'old man' (grandpa), who bumped his head on a flowerpot. The folk trio's lyrics reference the hide-and-seek game, and the verses draw in other nursery rhymes ('Hey Diddle Diddle'; 'Star Light, Star Bright'); the song's original verse about burning ladybug children has been skipped, happily. In Davenier's capable hands, the grandparents' warm, welcoming home provides a cozy contrast to the gloomy weather, and the verses accompany whimsical fantasy scenes of grandpa and child interacting with nursery rhyme characters; along with the lines 'Won't be my father's Jack./ No, I won't be my mother's Jill,' the grandfather offers his ice pack to Jack, who has just tumbled down the hill. A sweet-natured interpretation with a happy ending — grandpa is certainly capable of getting up in the morning. An accompanying CD presents this and two other songs. Ages 4 — up.
