    One thought on “Mosquitoes Are Ruining My Summer!: And Other Silly Dilly Camp Songs

    1. Barbara

      Fourteen verses center around going to camp, and the authors even provide the tunes to which the lines should be sung. I couldn't help but sing "Somebody Send Me Home Now!" for its hilarious send-up of camp food and camp cooks. I also shuddered as I read "The Laundry Blues" describing how one camper hasn't done his laundry in four weeks and now selects what he will wear by the smell. UGH! The watercolor, colored pencil, and ink illustrations for that song positively reek. The author and illustra [...]

    2. Cathy Blackler

      I love creating song parodies; combining well-known tunes with lyrics appropriate to specific situations. Katz has done this masterfully with songs focusing on the summer camp experience. I found myself chuckling aloud as I sang tunes aloud. Quirky illustrations add to the humorous flavor of this summer time must read.

    3. Alyson (Kid Lit Frenzy)

      Katz has created a variety of camp songs set to familiar tunes. Each song is filled with camp humor and Catrow's illustrations take it up a notch.

    4. Kelly

      It's another Alan Katz 'silly dilly' rhyming book. Katz takes popular children's songs and changes the words to fit the theme of the book. This theme is summer.It's an okay book. As an adult, I did get a little bored with the songs. I tried to see them through the eyes of a child and I just couldn't see how a little one would appreciate the silliness.

    5. Dolly

      This is a book of fun little camp-themed ditties that accompany the tunes to children's songs we all (should) know so well. I did my best to sing these to the appropriate tune, but I succeeded with some more than others. Oh well, perhaps we can try to get ahold of an audio version and follow along with the book as the professionals sing. Alan Katz and David Catrow have collaborated on several of these Silly Dilly Songs books and we have all enjoyed singing the songs together and giggling over th [...]

    6. Raina

      Goofy silly reworkings of common tunes with wacky lyrics and Catrow's madcap illustrations. Took this out to the elementary schools to promote the summer reading program, and this didn't catch on as well as last year's musical selection, Sipping Spiders Through a Straw Campfire Songs for Monsters. But it's bright and colorful and cute and gross all at once. Fine for what it is.

    7. Jacey

      This is a book full of poems set to classic songs like "Yankee Doodle" and "Old McDonald Had a Farm." Each page is about a different part of camp that just is not going the way the kids expected. While it may focus on all the bad stuff that is happening, it is still hilarious and still shows how to make the best out of a bad situation!

    8. Tam

      My 9-year-old loves the songs/poems by Alan Katz. This time they are about a kids camp.Example:On the Bus Ride (sang to Yankee Doodle)"On the bus ride off to camp, alone with 50 strangers.Kids are crying. Seats are damp. Ahead . . . who knows what dangers?We stop off, pick up 10 more-all 60 misbehaving.Sitting with a kid who sayshe's 8 . . . and yet he's shaving!"

    9. The Brothers

      Dex (6yo) LOVES these silly dilly song books. (And I love David Catrow's illustrations). This offering of tunes is all about the joys (and miseries) of going to camp. A few of the old melodies I didn't know, so I just read instead of sang the songs and they still were very fun.Illustrations are rockin'!

      My local bookseller and good friend Cindy Borgen brought this back from NYC signed by Alan Katz.Another great collection of song parodies about summer camp. Add it to your collection of his other books. Thanks Cindy!
