The Blues of Flats Brown
From the Series Live Oak Media eReadalong
“Myers’ fun picture book about a junkyard dog turned celebrated blues musician works wonderfully… thanks to Charles Turner’s spirited narration and Mark “Dog” Deffenbaugh’s bluesy guitar strumming…Turner’s energetic narration keeps the story humming along. Deffenbaugh’s guitar work pleases the ear, and his performance of ‘The New York City Blues’ (music and lyrics by Myers) is the program’s highlight. This story about the joys of blues music has found a format that serves it very well." – School Library Journal
