"Alvin and the Chipmunks' 1981 television special gets restaged as a padded oversize book. When Alvin takes pity on a sick boy and gives him his Golden Echo Harmonica, he has nothing to play at the Chipmunks' concert at Carnegie Hall. In the end, though, his kindness is rewarded. Picture prompts correspond to battery-activated sound panels that play dialogue and five songs, including 'Deck the Halls' and 'The Chipmunk Song.' The cheerful digital images and familiar songs should draw nostalgic adults as well as young readers. Ages 4 8. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
