had his own scary brush with German life. While at school in Gebesee in 1936, the 10-year-old was abruptly drafted into the Hitlerjugend. A Nazi Kommandant beat him viciously with a heavy leather belt with thick iron buckles for an improperly knotted tie. Then, a gruesome accident with a friend’s Swiss Army knife caused him to lose his right eye. Back in New York, Schuller’s parents discovered that he had forgotten almost all of his English


except for “yes,” “no,” and “vegetable,” which he pronounced in the German way. From these early experiences, Schuller grew to forge a distinguished career for himself, following


in his father’s footsteps. (His parents met at a concert of the New York Philharmonic where his father was playing.) According to Wikipedia, Schuller’s association with Spokane began with guest conducting the


Spokane Symphony for one week in 1982. He then served as Music Director from 1984 - 1985 and has since regularly appeared as a guest conductor. Schuller also serves as Artistic Director to the nearby Festival at Sandpoint. A fascinating book which will leave readers hungry for the conclusion.


Published by the University of Rochester Press, hardback, $49.95 Gunther Schuller has served on the faculty of the Manhattan School of Music and Yale University and


as the director of the Tanglewood Music Center. He is the author of The Swing Era; The Development of Jazz, 1930-1945; Early Jazz: Its Roots and Musical Development; The Compleat Conductor and many other books.


The Tighty Whitey Spider… And More Wacky Animal Poems I Totally Made Up


by Kenn Nesbitt and Illustrated by Ethan Long The question is not whether you think “Ferret Soccer” sung to the tune of “Frere Jacques” is


funny. I would say the question is whether or not your kids will. Except it’s not really a question. Kids love Kenn Nesbitt. He just has that kind of a sense of humor. The twists and turns of the poems are startling. Some are just wacky and others depend on puns. Others are take-offs on popular children’s literature, such as “If You Give a Mouse a Motorcycle,”


which references not only Laura Numeroff ’s series If You Give a (This) a (That) but also the crotch-rocket-riding rodent Runaway Ralph by Beverly Cleary.


“If you give a mouse a motorcycle, don’t be too surprised if he starts behaving strangely once he knows he’s motorized.”


Here’s some more Nesbitt weirdness from a poem called “Today I Touched the Buffalobster:” “Today I touched the buffalobster


and the goldfishark, the eagleopard, ocelotter, and the weaselark.”


Now, what child wouldn’t find that hysterical? The friendly and funny illustrations of Frog Ball,


the Space Cow, and the Triangular Kitten by Ethan Long really add to this clever volume. And when you buy the book, free audio tracks are available to hear the author read and sing some of his best-loved poems. Published by Sourcebooks, paperback, $9.99 Kenn Nesbitt is the author of several children’s books and often visits schools and libraries to share his


work. He lives in a big old house in Spokane, Washington, with his wife Ann, their son Max, their daughter Madison, and two cats.
