About the Author:

Tim A. McKenzie plays with the Texas-based acoustic trio Blue Prairie, has opened for many famous musical acts, and has entertained distinguished personalities. By day, his work is in the Texas oil fields, and he participates in music programs in Texas public schools.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Baxter Barret Brown wants to take his bass fiddle wherever he goes, so he alters the instrument to suit his needs. He adds wheels, handlebars, a seat, and a big horn to make it into a bicycle. When he comes upon a lake, he attaches an anchor and a sail. Finally, he turns it into a home with a bed, a lamp, a TV, and a door cut into the side. However, when he tries to play the instrument, he finds that all of the embellishments get in the way. Realizing that "he had traded something he really loved for a lot things he didn't need," he gets back to basics. Shaw's fun-loving watercolors show a smiling boy clad in overalls and detail the imaginative changes he makes to the fiddle. The accompanying CD, which features four kid-friendly tunes and a reading of the story, emphasizes the sounds of the bass with McKenzie's smooth vocals. Together, the book and recording provide a look at acoustic instruments and folk styling suitable for music lovers or classrooms.–Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX
