Hold on to your hat! Tommy was a piper's son, He learned to pipe when he was young; The only song that he could play Was over the hills and far away. Over the hills and a long way off The wind shall blow my top hat off. Come join the fun as Tom, an otter pup, sets out on a merry journey through the various seasons, enchanting young and old alike with his exuberant piping. Among his charmed listeners are raccoons, rabbits, pigs, and a well-dressed snail -- but the most charmed of all is Molly, who accepts his hand in marriage. In reimagining this traditional folk song, Chris Conover once again proves her incredible skill, which was touted by School Library Journal: "No one portrays animals in a more charming and expressive way than Conover." For the musically inclined, music for piano and guitar is in the back of the book.
