A musical mash-up for the toddler set that will bring them to their feet! ... until it's time to sleep.

Veteran children's book author and singer/ songwriter Barney Saltzberg has created a classic sing-aloud book with enduring appeal! Though "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and "The Alphabet Song" follow the same exact tune, never before has a children's book mashed up these two quintessential songs of childhood. The lyrics are seamlessly woven together and enriched with cameos by high-flying birds, a twirling cow, a growling bear, a banjo, and a tree swaying in the wind. Benaglia's whimsical art brings a Seussian feel and a visual narrative that leads the reader right... into... bed.

"Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and The ABC Song both have the same tune. It's a revelation to many adults... The bright illustrations and solid hardback book make this story ideal for babies aged around 1 year. Certainly the rhyming elements are perfect for toddlers and nursery aged children getting to grips with early language. This fun book is perfect for the winding down bedtime read with its mute tones and characters falling asleep." —ChopsyBaby.com

"Sing along to this lyrical mash-up enriches with silly cameos by high-flying birds, a twirling cow, a growling bear, and a banjo. Readers are encouraged to 'moo' and 'tweet', to flap and bounce, to stand tall and fly... Combining actions with rhyme to make the book come alive!"—NI4Kids
