Based on the German folktale recorded by the Brothers Grimm, “The Bremen Town Musicians,” this hilarious romp featuring a burro, a coyote, a skunk, and a raven subtly introduces the theme of human encroachment on nature through a fun, attention-grabbing story. The four friends and the American Southwest are carefully depicted through unique cartoon illustrations, and the song accompanying the book will have young readers braying, crowing, and howling along. Ages four to eight.
