Crankee DoodleBook - 2013
"Yankee Doodle went to town / a-riding on a pony / stuck a feather in his hat / and called it macaroni." Many know the song "Yankee Doodle Dandy," but few understand it. This unapologetically silly picture book reveals that the legendary ride to town (and the whole macaroni thing) was all suggested by Mr. Doodle's overeager pony. This just makes Mr. Doodle cranky: "I do not want macaroni. I do not want a feather. I do not want any other clothing, anyother pasta, or any other parts of a bird. I do not want anything that they have in town!" A historical note ends this colorful, comical take on a nonsensical old song.
