    One thought on “Bawk & Roll”

    1. Marge and Lola (chickens) are on tour with superstar singer Elvis Poultry. Every time they get on stage as his backup singers they faint. They try many things to not be so stressed but stage fright makes them pass out and leave Elvis thinking he'll have to have a solo act.One day Marge and Lola come up with a great idea to help them keep from fainting, and it works! This story is funny all the way through with bold illustrations that add much to the humour.

    2. Elvis Poultry and his Chicken Dancers go on tour but The Chicken Dancers get a serious case of stage fright. Will they overcome their fear in time for the big concert at Dale's Dairy Farm? Love this!! Dan Santat is quickly becoming one of my favorite illustrators.

    3. This follow-up to Chicken Dance is enjoyable, but like Chicken Dance - I still don't get a good grasp of the intended audience.

    4. It's about time someone wrote a children's book featuring Elvis. Elvis Poultry, that is, though he isn't the main character. My kindergarten students had a hard time following the plot because much of it is inferred, but this might be a "teachable" asset to older students learning reading skills.Pictures are vibrant, but this one, like chickens, had a hard time getting off the ground.

    5. Marge and Lola can't believe how their dreams have come true. Superstar singer Elvis Poultry has asked them to be backup singers on his rock and roll tour. Their chicken dance rocked the house at the talent show in Sauer and Santat's previous book, Chicken Dance. But when the lights come on and Elvis parades in front of the cheering crowd, stage fright strikes - these chickens get cold feet.Marge and Lola are down for the count and are sure nothing can help them. At each new venue, they try some [...]

    6. In the follow up to the earlier hilarious title, Chicken Dance, Marge and Lola head off on tour with Elvis Poultry. They're ready to shake their tale feathers behind the great singer, but once they get on the stage, they become frozen and can't do a thing. After several failed attempts to conquer their stage fright, they resort to drastic measures. As in the previous title, this picture book is filled with witty phrases such as this one that comes out of the mouth of Elvis: "We'll try one more s [...]

    7. Description: Chicken dancers Marge and Lola go on tour with Elvis Poultry and must battle stage fright as they travel far from the comforts of their home and friends.Genre: FantasyIntended Audience: Kindergarten - 2nd GradeCurriculum Connection: In the early grades I know children learn about citizenship and what it means to be a friend. This book can offer two examples with which children can identify the traits of a friend. On one hand there is Elvis Poultry who tells the chickens that they ne [...]

    8. Summary: “Bawk and Roll” is a catchy book about two chickens becoming brave enough to back up sing and dance. They get the chance to dance for Elvis Poultry, a famous world known rooster. They travel with Elvis Poultry and continue to perform but each time they try, they become afraid and can't perform. Elvis thinks of a plan to help the chickens overcome their stage fright once and for all. This book is surrounded with hidden jokes about the real Elvis Presley and the history of rock and ro [...]

    9. I chose this book because at first the thing that stood out the most is that it is an Oklahoma Author. After reading the story I thought it would be a great picture book for children to read. Grade Level: K-2nd Curriculum Connection: Social Skills, because that show having a friend help them get over their fear that has them out in a sticky situation throughout the whole book. Being able to work through the mess can help students become more confident and sociable. Content Concerns: I would say [...]

    10. This is a fun read aloud book about chickens with some serious stage fright. I didn't realize this was a follow up to another book called "Chicken Dance". I will say this stands well on its own, and that I must go read the previous book soon.Lola and Marge are dancers (and chickens) about to hit the road with the great Elvis Poultry. This is the chance of a lifetime. But you won't believe what happens when the curtain goes up, or how they figure out what to do about their serious problem. In bet [...]

    11. Quirky and funny describe this eclectic picture book from Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat. Using a very familiar name to help with the story, Elvis, they take you on the touring adventures of Elvis Poultry and the Chicken Dancers, Lola and Marge. Elvis is all for going all out for a performance but the Lola and Marge are scaredy chickens. They try almost everything to get them over their stage fright.Finally, they answer the old question, 'Why did the chicken cross the road?' and their answer awaits [...]

    12. "Dancing chickens Marge and Lola have flown the coop to shake, wattle, and roll on tour with superstar singer Elvis Poultry. Will the hens bawk at fame and lay a rotton egg in concert? Or will they rise to the top of the pecking order and give the crowds something to crow about?"--From inside flap of dust cover.SubjectsChickens -- Juvenile fictionRoosters -- Juvenile fiction.Entertainers -- Juvenile fiction I might like this book more if the font was not so crazy.

    13. In this bawk-tastic sequel to CHICKEN DANCE, Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat will once again rock your socks off. Marge and Lola have joined Elvis Poultry’s barnyard tour, but stage fright gets the best of them. The story and illustrations mesh beautifully, giving the reader and listener things to look and laugh at on every page. The resolution of Marge and Lola’s problem is both heartwarming and unexpected. I’m not sure I can pick a favorite, but I know that CHICKEN DANCE and BAWK & ROLL w [...]

    14. A fun follow-up with a realistic problem of stage fright. I love all the little jokes you see in the paper headlines and in what they say (e.g. "mooed off stage"). Some humor may be over the preschool crowd's heads, but school-age will enjoy it. Especially if they know about Elvis Prestley. And if they don't, at least the adult who is reading aloud or being read to can enjoy the jokes. Elvis aside, the story is still fun and kids could enjoy it. A storytime wouldn't do all the humor justice and [...]

    15. Shake, rattle and roll with Elvis Poultry and his back up chickens Marge and Lola…or not. Marge and Lola can’t seem to get over their stage fright and stop fainting at every show. Will Elvis Poultry have to ditch them and go solo? “Bawk and Roll” is a fun story that can teach kids about overcoming stage fright. I would recommend this as a great book for kindergarteners through second grade since the writing is very basic. The artwork is also very colorful and will attract younger kids. S [...]

    16. No better way to overcome your fears than with your friends! Fun story that reinforces team spirit, which is more important than being a star. Speaking of which, Sauer and Santat make a great team. More Elvis in this sequel to CHICKEN DANCE, and that's good too. I liked how his comb (is that what you call that rubbery red thing on top of roosters' heads???) was in rollers during the bus ride.

    17. I've really been looking forward to this one. Recaps of CHICKEN DANCE appear at the beginning of the book before launching into a new chapter. Lots of chicken jokes in here (and a story line that requires "crossing the road" is not to be missed)and Sauer is not afraid to use the word "wattle." I love the whole package of this book from a funny, engaging story to Santat's brilliant illustrations that fill the page with lots of oranges and reds.

    18. An interesting book about confidence and friendship. While we now live near Memphis it seems there is a world of Elvis, I'm sure that this book would be well received by many for more than it's own merits in personality and lessons learned. It's cute and a fun read. *Thanks to Sterling for providing a copy for review.*scheduled: creativemadnessmama/blog/2

    19. Our heroine chickens are touring with Elvis Poultry, but they have severe stage fright. They have to overcome it or Elvis will have to go solo. They try different techniques, but everything fails. They have just one more chanceThis is the second in the series and it is very cute. With big bright pictures and hip text, children will love this funny story.

    20. Does one need to have read the first one to properly enjoy this one?Love the illustrations. And I like the story we can all use friends to help us get over nerves and reach our full potential.If I was going to read this to some kids? Would need to practice my Elvis voice. And come up with a couple others. ;]

    21. I am rolling when I look through this book. Geared for early or intermediate elementary, I'm not sure they will get all the adult humor and Elvis references. I wish there was some kind of CD to go along with this. The book is full of word plays: the coop sessions plus studio outtakes of "Jailhouse Bawk" and "Are You Lonesome In Flight?" among others. More fun for me to read

    22. "Dancing chickens Marge and Lola have flown the coop to shake, wattle, and roll on tour with superstar singer Elvis Poultry. Will the hens bawk at fame and lay a rotton egg in concert? Or will they rise to the top of the pecking order and give the crowds something to crow about?"--From inside flap of dust cover.

    23. This book is a sequel to a book called Chicken Dance (by same author), so I was a little confused when I first started reading it. Mainly it's about two chickens going on tour with Elvis Poultry, but they suffer extreme stage fright. Being clever, they figure how to manage.Totally fun illustrations.

    24. Marge & Lola, dancin chickens goes on tour with a very famous musicians. Surprisingly, just when it's time to rock, they suffer from unexpected stage fright. Marge & Lola work diligently to try to think of solutions. The story and illustrations works well for elementary age or a general story audience.

    25. The follow-up to the funny Chicken Dance had me giggling. Dan Santat detailed and humorous pictures, particularly in the background on many pages are hysterical. Best line and illustration: "The chickens crossed the road." Younger grade school kids will like this one.

    26. Bravo! This is what "Rock-a-Doodle" could have been. Mile-a-minute puns, delightful illustrations and a laugh-out-loud storyline are highlights of this book about a hip-shakin' rooster, Elvis Poultry. Adults and kids alike will love this one.

    27. Filled with great Elvis references (don't miss the song titles on the back cover!), this sequel to Chicken Dance may be more for the adult reader than the intended audience! Some of the humor may roll completely over their heads!

    28. Tammi Sauer and Dan Santat, birds of a feather, flock together again bringing Elvis Poultry, Lola and Marge, in all their glory to readers in a hilarious, pun-filled, sequel.Read my full review at:bit/IbxLpp
