School Library Journal Review: Monkey Mumbo Jumbo

Monkey Mumbo Jumbo Cover

Buy Monkey Mumbo Jumbo

Monkey Mumbo Jumbo. CD. approx. 46 min. Prod. by Max Tell Prods. Dist. by AV Café. 2009. $14.99.

PreS-Gr 2-Max Tell (aka Robert Stelmach) and Chris Kelly present 13 original songs and an original story. Most of these silly songs are in folk or bluegrass musical style.

A children's chorus joins in on several of them. Tell (whose voice is similar to Pete Seeger's) and Kelly provide excellent vocals and instrumental performances.

"Barnabus the Fishie" wishes to be a boy. "The Merry-Go-Round Dog" can't bark, but he can make other animal sounds. "When I Grow Up" is about career choices.

Other songs include "Monster Under My Bed," "Mud Puddle Pudding," "I Want to Be a Sheriff," "Monkey Mumbo Jumbo" and more.

Tell does a fabulous job telling his story of "Rodney Scribble," (bonus track) the only person in town who writes legibly, causing a great ruckus at school, especially with his teacher, Miss Scratchit, and the principal, Mr. Waterproof Ink.

This humorous album will be a great addition for children's music collections.
