The all-animal touring concert group Zoola Palooza has come to town. With a motley crew of animals playing a variety of instruments, homographs abound (homographs are words that are spelled the same but sound different and have different meanings). Billy the striped BASS opens the show wearing a big BOW tie. He gives a gracious BOW from the top of his BASS fiddle.
This terrific companion to Dear Deer: A Book of Homophones brings homographs to the spotlight for a show-stopping good time.
