• My son cannot get enough of the book, The Ballad Of Phineas McBoof… as well as its companion CD. Through the crazy adventures of Phineas the rock star monkey and his International Band of Misunderstood Geniuses, he’s able to discover the wonder and joy of making music with friends. The story is fun to read. The illustrations are wonderful. And the music is a treat for both of us.

Synopsis… Phineas McBoof — the great rock star monkey from the Isle of Thelonious — has become so popular, he can no longer hear himself perform over the screaming fans at his concerts. So one night, he leaves fame and fortune behind to refocus on his true passion — music. He hops on a rowboat with his guitar and launches a journey that introduces him to a much larger world of music than even he imagined. Along the way, he meets a colorful cast of creative creatures. Together, they form a new band: The International Band Of Misunderstood Geniuses
