A Pet Like That

In this episode we follow the creation of "A Pet Like That," a song destined for my upcoming CD, Paws, Claws, Scales, and Tales. Listen and learn how a well-known children's book author helped me out with finding the perfect rhyme!

What great timing - it's Dr. Seuss's birthday, so here's something just for fun: see if you can figure out which Dr. Seuss book I reference in the song! It took me forever to find the one I wanted. I must have read every book Dr. Seuss ever wrote, looking for the one I remembered with weird pets in it. Oh well, I can easily think of worse ways to spend my time! If you think you know the answer, post a comment!

Congratulations to our free CD winner for February, Kris Tobey of Tahlequah, Oklahoma!

  1. Another great podcast. Thanks!

    As for the Dr. Suess book refererenced, I'm going with O.F.T.F.R.F.B.F

    Great song, and I think you came up with the perfect lyric..."Wouldn't it be cool..."

  2. Hi Devon!

    Thanks for posting a comment. And thanks for your validation about the line I ended up using - "wouldn't it be cool" - when that one came out of me it just clicked. And yes, you got right the Dr. Seuss book!
