"There once was a monkey -- McBoof was his name. His fans called him Phineas, and he had great fame..."

So starts the journey of the great enigmatic monkey, Phineas McBoof, as he fleetingly flees fame and fortune to find philosophy and form his fantastic new band, The International Band Of Misunderstood Geniuses.

Take an adventure with rugged individualists like Backbone The Octopus, Bottomus The Hip Popotamus, Riley The Robot, Lenny Long Tail, and The Ooh Gah Boo Gus as they travel the world with one thing in common: They groove to their own music. So come join The International Band Of Misunderstood Geniuses to find your own inner genius. With colorful characters, this book tells the same tale as Doctor Noize's beloved recording of the same name, with its #1 national hit song "Banana."

About the Author:

Let's get one thing straight: Doctor Noize s real name is not Mylie Cyrus. It s Cory Cullinan. He grew up in Silicon Valley and had a Leave It to Beaver childhood until his brother and father died in high school, inspiring him to dedicate his life to bringing the energizing friendship, creativity and humor to the world his childhood family had given to him.

He graduated with Distinction and Honors in Music and Political Science from Stanford University, where he focused on classical music history, electronic music and voice. His music has appeared in mainstream movies, television shows and documentaries, from Brad Pitt's Spy Game to films shown everywhere from the Sundance Film Festival and PBS to Air Force training sessions. Cullinan s album of music for obsolete children (also known as adults), My Oyster, drew rave reviews for having the free spirit of an indie release but the production values of a major release a blueprint he would follow upon becoming Doctor Noize.

He released The Ballad Of Phineas McBoof, his first recording under the guise of his alter ego, Doctor Noize. Within two months, it had spawned a national #1 hit song Banana on XM Sirius Kids Radio and scored awards ranging from a Parents Choice Award to being named one of Dr. Toy s 100 Best Children s Products. Then came the completion of Doctor Noize s first book, The Ballad Of Phineas McBoof. Like the recording, the book tells the tale of the great monkey Phineas McBoof and his quest for the impossible perfect song with his band, The International Band Of Misunderstood Geniuses.

As a live performer, the Doc has inspired enthusiastic audiences across the country by engaging kids and adults alike with his innovative performance approach that inspires his audiences to participate in the creative process. His stage shows feature him performing multiple instruments and arranging and recording songs live on the spot, inviting audience members to come onstage and contribute their own talents. All Doctor Noize live programz are administered to creative audiences with immeasurable doses of energy, goodwill and humor. The Doc performs everything from little acoustic showz to full Noizy showz to Doctor Noize family performances with full symphony orchestra.

Doctor Noize scored his second national Top Ten hit on Sirius XM Kids Place Live! radio with his theme song Welcome To Grammaropolis for the multimedia brand Grammaropolis. He is still trying to memorize his own lyrics to that song for live performance. There are a lot of them and they move very fast. Like really, really fast. The song also features the first Doctor Noize animated video.

Review:

(On the recording of the same name...) A story that is witty and funny and executed with finesse and humor. This band of creatures will make you laugh and hang on their every word and every bit of music they make... --Charlotte Bohn, "Baltimore's Child"

(On the recording of the same name...) As original as children's entertainment gets... The dialogue and interplay between the characters is charming and funny. The story... also teachers listeners about the instruments. --Jeff, "out with the kids parent differently"

(On the recording of the same name...) This cartoon-colored Odyssey shows how Phineas learns about other creatures' love of music... as he realizes we each have a song to contribute to the great symphony of life. --Joseph W. Cates, "Richmond Parents Monthly"
