Part Little Golden Book, part nightmare, this storybook features the disturbing adventures of a playful pachyderm-like creature. An enclosed CD contains a soundtrack by Bill Frisell for listening to while reading the book!Frank creator Jim Woodring and legendary jazz guitarist/Nonesuch recording artist Bill Frisell have collaborated to create this unique multimedia storybook for the ages. Reminiscent of a Little Golden Book, this full-color hardcover contains a delightful story made all the more special with the inclusion of a CD created and recorded by Frisell especially for this book and inspired directly by Woodring's story.
