No childhood is complete without singing Old MacDonald, and given artist Gris Grimly’s own personal connection to the poem, his wild and wooly spin makes perfect sense for a new generation (and son). Hueing to a watercolor palette of oranges & browns and with Grimly’s signature creature concoctions, this inventive take will delight the plethora of storytime folk who will squeal in delight at the surprise ending.
