‘Phineas McBoof’ is a story album for lil’ scat-humor fans.

Even we're guilty of the cliché “you'll love X as much as your kids.” But not today! This enormously silly CD is perfect for little ones just discovering scatological humor (that is to say, poop jokes). But it’s also educational! Like Peter and the Wolf but more fun, this wildly danceable story-album introduces kids to musical instruments, styles, and composition. “Don’t be Silly,” a number featuring dog, frog, and shark sounds, might be the only song here that you'll find listenable.
