Crankee Doodle by Tom Angleberger

9780547818542We all learn the song “Yankee Doodle”, but what do all those words actually mean?  Macaroni?  Who came up with that?!  Well, you’re not the only one with questions.  In Tom Angleberger’s Crankee Doodle, Mr. Doodle grumps about everything – the feather, the hat, the pasta references.  Can his pony friend convince him to go to town anyway?  This fun, silly book is a great way to learn a little something about an American classic.  Good luck getting the song out of your head after reading it!

    Hi, can i ask you something? I’m looking for children books with “scary” animal illustrations like the big bad wolf (or a fox) eating pigs (or seven kids or Red Riding hood or birds in Chicken Little) or being pictured with a fat stomach. Could be any other animal as well. I need it for my research. Any sort of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
