Risseldy, Rosseldy, also known as Nickety Nackety or I Married My Wife in the Month of June, is a great American nonsense song with a real tongue-twister for the chorus.

Full of humor and glorious illustrations, this deligthful songtale is certain to enthrall today's children, part of John M. Feierabend's dream of bringing our classic songtales to vivid life.

Ashley Poulin's dazzling illustrations capture the life and humor of this song, pulling the reader into the fantastic world of newlyweds, both human and chipmunk!

The song may be downloaded in audio form at no charge at The fully notated version of the song with all of the words is included at the end of the book, along with a detailed history of this beloved songtale.

A hilarious take on a timeless story, this picture book will become a favorite of today's children, another wonderful chapter in the continuing legacy of a delightful, classic songtale.

John M. Feierabend has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes from the memories of the American people in the hopes that these treasures will be preserved for future generations.
