Crankee Doodle

Tom Angleberger

Yankee Doodle went to town / a-riding on a pony / stuck a feather in his hat / and called it macaroni." Many know the song " Yankee Doodle Dandy," but few understand it. This unapologetically silly picture book reveals that the legendary ride to town (and the whole macaroni thing) was all suggested by Mr. Doodle' s overeager pony. This just makes Mr. Doodle cranky: " I do not want macaroni. I do not want a feather. I do not want any other clothing, any other pasta, or any other parts of a bird. I do not want anything that they have in town!" A historical note ends this colorful, comical take on a nonsensical old song.
