A Monkee Becomes a Penguin

In the past year we’ve gathered quite a library of children’s books that we like to read to Liam but we’re especially fond of the Sandra Boynton board books.

One of her books, "Your Personal Penguin" has a companion song that’s sung by none other than my favorite Monkee, Davy Jones!   Davy is featured in the book and on the CD, singing the title song.   Reportedly, Davy & Boyton have become close friends as a result of the project.

And here’s a fun behind-the-scenes look at Davy Jones & Michael Ford composing & recording this infectious little tune:

Visit Workman Publishing to see other behind-the-scenes videos and listen to more Boynton songs.   Rob thinks Opus would approve!
