What People Are Saying About This Book

"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."
