9780060226909: Mama Don't Allow

Saxophone-playing Miles and his Swamp Band find a bevy of sharp-toothed, long-tailed alligators who love to listen to their music. But little do Miles and his band know what the alligators plan for them at the close of their jubilant all-night ball! Inspired by a traditional song, this vibrant picture book is "ebullient, fast-paced, and funny."

From AudioFile:

One of the joys of picture books on audio is the way that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Here, it is the music that makes the difference in the read-aloud version of MAMA DON'T ALLOW. The wonderful jazzy introductory music matches the loose, easy-going illustrations and sets the tone for this adventure. Tom Chapin's friendly, relaxed voice invites us along, and the format makes it easy to read aloud from the balloons on the pages. Chapin's alligator voices are excellent--a little sly, a little rough, and each one unique. This delightful audiobook takes its story beyond what reading alone can do. W.L.S.
