Synopses & Reviews
"Utterly fantastic. As a doting auntie, I can't wait to share it with my little niece. The music makes it even more fun. A great book for the little kid in everyone." Lynn Farquhar, The Tattered Cover, Denver, CO
Gobble, Quack, Moon is a rousing and entertaining childrens picturebook with an accompanying audio CD of author Matthew Gollubs performance with toe-tapping background music. A whimsical story about a group of farm animals who reach for the stars and have fun dancing on the moon, Gobble, Quack, Moon is embellished by its freewheeling puns, playful attitude, and exuberant full-color artwork by Judy Love. Gobble, Quack, Moon is an engaging, enthusiastically recommended read-along experience for young readers ages 2 to 8, by itself or in tangent with the audio CD.
Midwest Book Review
"Gollub's rhyming text exudes a buoyant energy...His no-place-like-home and grass-is-always-greener themes will surely ring familiar to youngsters." Publishers Weekly
"When Katie the cow sets her heart on donning a tutu and dancing in space, all the barnyard animals pitch in to build a rocket ship and transport themselves to the moon. They lark about amid the craters for a while, playing games and dancing such classic numbers as the Watusi and the Mashed Potato, then the whole jovial crew returns to Earth. The rhyming text bounces along agreeably, expanded by the good-humored ink drawings, brightened with watercolor washes. Packaged in a plastic sleeve and attached to the front-cover endpapers is a CD that offers Gollub reading the story aloud with a spirited musical accompaniment."
A host of barn animals cheers up Katie the cow by staging a ballet party on the moon. Includes narration on audio CD set to blues, waltzes, and rock n roll.
