  From a critically acclaimed biographer and an award winning cartoonist comes a debut picture book that takes a traditional sing-along tune and puts a brand new twist on it. SUE MACDONALD HAD A BOOK uses the rhythmic structure of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" to provide the story's framework. It's a "vowel" sing-along! With playful characters and adventurous scenarios, this book is an excellent choice for learning about vowels.

What would you do if a bunch of letters jumped right off the page while you were reading a book? Run after them, of course! Join Sue MacDonald as she travels from a railroad station to a sewer to a mountain peak and more, all in an attempt to capture her renegade vowels. Reading a book has never been so interactive!

Jim Tobin's clever textóbased on a favorite children's songó is perfectly coupled with Dave Coverly's winning illustrations. Get ready for a madcap adventure starring five very important letters!
