Enhanced ebook (includes audio) Original illustrations, rich in color and texture, offer an endearingly offbeat rendering of this cherished timeless folk song. It takes on a life of its own becoming a stand-alone story featuring several zany characters including an acrobatic pink-haired roller-skater girl, a straw hat-wearing unshaven hillbilly astronaut and a banjo-playing cow-loving weasel. A recording of the song is included.
