A classic folktale, "The Crabfish" has inspired laughs from children and adults alike for more than 600 years. For close to 400 years, the tale has also been told through song in English-speaking countries. Now adapted by John M. Feierabend and beautifully illustrated by Vincent Nguyen, "The Crabfish" is sure to engage another generation with story and song.
In addition to the book, this package includes a CD of "The Crabfish" songtale for listening and singing along. The song is recorded twice: the first time the tale is sung completely, while the second time everyone is invited to sing along on the chorus.
A new twist on a timeless story, this book and CD set will certainly become a favorite of today's children, another chapter in the continuing legacy of a delightful, classic folktale.
