Once called "a musical Dr. Seuss," Jim Copp recorded nine children's albums from 1958 to 1971. These critically acclaimed, clever rhyming stories told through song won Jim Copp many passionate lifelong fans.Now, for the first time ever, his most popular characters--Kate Higgins, Miss Goggins and the gorilla, and Martha Matilda O'Toole--hop, stomp, and skip to life on the pages of this book. They're as captivating today as they were back when the New York Times called Jim's work "inspired nonsense." So come take a look, and also have a listen. Jim's offbeat recordings will have everybody--even the most mutinous among us--dancing and singing along. Includes an author's note and a CD that features three of Jim Copp's original recordings.
