A rollicking read-aloud that combines the wonderful whimsy, colourful cast, and jovial jokes of cumulative classics like I Know an Old Lady and Dr. Seuss's And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street

Billy Bloo is stuck in goo.

Who will help him, tell me who?

Who'll unstick him from this goo?

Would you?


With madcap mania,
a troupe of merry volunteers
attempt to rescue poor Billy Bloo,
only to find themselves stuck in goo too!
Oh, what to do?

This spry, slapstick comedy of errors
will have you rolling with laughter
(but hopefully not into any goo!).

"Younger listeners will enjoy completing Monkey's unfinished verses within the story, and slightly older children will be spurred to create their own lists of rhyming words." -- Booklist
