Abetted by a peppy ukulele score, six-year-old narrator Lucas Towne treats kids to a romp in the park with a pack of flea-ridden pooches while teaching them how to tune a ukulele. In author-illustrator Barner's energetic scenes, the fleas appear as clouds of dots surrounding the dogs, who make merry havoc while a ukulele-playing child chases after them. Lucas Towne brings gusto to the tale's simple couplets, which are also sung (rather ponderously) in the final track by a trio of child voices. Towne's father, actor Joe Towne, reads an appended note on the ukulele's history, and strummed chords augment a pictorial introduction to ukulele fingerings. The audio enhancements neatly complete the print book. V.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
