About the Author:

Mary Ann Hoberman and Nadine Bernard Westcott also collaborated on There Once Was a Man Named Michael Finnegan (insert page reference) and The Eensy Weensy Spider. Ms. Hoberman lives in Greenwich, Connecticut, and Ms. Westcott lives on Nantucket.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2-The successful author-illustrator team behind such titles as Miss Mary Mack (1998) and The Eensy-Weensy Spider (2000, both Little, Brown) has brought another silly song into the world of picture books. Poor Michael Finnegan's violin playing is sorely underappreciated. It is only when he finds a dog he names Quinn-igan (who enjoys the awful "din-igan" of the "violin-igan") that the man is truly happy. In this adapted and elongated version of the traditional song, verses have been added to create some semblance of a story. Sometimes it's a bit of a stretch, as when Michael Finnegan "Took the money from their tin-igan,/Bought a house and moved right in-igan" or when he "Played so loud it was a sin-igan." Still, the book is sure to be a hit with the storytime crowd. The exuberance of this silly romp is wonderfully conveyed in the wacky watercolor-and-ink illustrations that show the tattered, unshaven man and his grinning canine companion.-Piper L. Nyman, Fairfield/Suisun Community Library, Fairfield, CA
