    Grammy nominee. #1 New York Times bestseller. And, with 960,000 copies in print, a Recording Industry Association of America Platinum album. What an event! What a show! It’sPhiladelphia Chickens—the catchy and quirky, tuneful and toe-tapping, exuberant, unexpected, and totally endearing family-musical-in-a-book.

    Here is a full-color songbook of 17 1/2 illustrated story-poems, and a full-length, fully orchestrated CD of original songs performed by such luminaries as Patti LuPone, Kevin Kline, Meryl Streep, The Bacon Brothers, and Laura Linney, who pleads "Please, Can I Keep It?"—it followed me home. / What exactly it is/ I don't know. Also joining in are Eric Stoltz, Scott Bakula, and two Boyntons, including daughter Caitlin McEwan, who performs a piece that every little listener will relate to—a love song to the chocolate chip cookies that are just out of reach. With the collaboration of composer Michael Ford (known to Boynton fans fromRhinoceros Tap), Philadelphia Chickens is that rarest of kids' musical discs—one whose inimitable lyrics and music make it as irresistible to parents as it is to their children.

    • Keep this in the car!

      One of our grandkids had this in there car. We played it on a long trip and we all sang along and the little looked at the book. They songs are funny and so well written. We don't have to sing "Old MacDonald" any more. We especially love - "Cows we a wonderful Cows". Opps that will be in my head all day.

    • Kids' music I love--not hate!

      My kids--and I--LOVE this CD.We know every word. The songs are clever and fun and we listen to it all the time. Now that they are older, I am looking forward to using the book to help them learn music notation with songs they're familiar with. Great buy.

    • This is one of the best children's CDs that we have bought. My husband and I never get tired of listening to it and my son loves it. Each song is different, but they all have in common comedy and silliness that make car trips easier for the whole family.
