Mark your calendars for the June 4th release of a picture book that’s as funny as any I’ve ever read. I gave my husband a dramatic reading of “Crankee Doodle,” last evening during the news, and we were both guffawing. Who says picture books are just for kids?

Author Tom Angleberger, of “Origami Yoda” book fame, had a revolutionary idea, turning the song “Yankee Doddle” into a crazy tale. Cartoon illustrations by his wife, Cece Bell, add to the hilarity as Crankee argues with his pony about the necessity of going to town, buying a hat, a feather, and other such nonsense.
