Someone has stolen the Mona Woofa from the Dogopolis Museum of Art and it's up to Art Dog, the mysterious, masked painter, to find the missing masterpiece. With the same high-spirited fun and adventure that have made Mystery on the Docks and Mama Don't Allow such perennially popular stories, Hurd serves up a new action-packed tale to delight young readers.
The wisdom of peace and the absurdity of fighting are demonstrated in seventeen stories and poems by outstanding authors of today such as Jean Fritz, Milton Meltzer, and Nancy Willard.
TOO LOUD! WHAT A RACKET! UNBEARABLE! Why don't you practice outside, dear? Not only Miles' parents, but the whole neighborhood has had enough of Miles' new saxophone! However, when Miles teams up with three other musicians to form the Swamp Band, their music suddenly gets a startlingly different reception. "We love that Swamp Band music!" yell the sharp-toothed, long-tailed, yellow-eyed alligators. "We like it LOUD! Come and play for the Alligator Ball." The Swamp Band is delighted . . . but little do they know what is in store for them after their first all-night jamboree. Every noise-loving child (and noise-hating parent) will revel in Thacher Hurd's funny, jazzy tale inspired by the traditional American song "Mama Don't Allow." Presch-3
