ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
That's "Supa-dupa PYEW-pa," as in what comes between a larval and adult honeybee!

This collection of songs by the "Singing Zoologist" (yes, Lucas actually has a degree in zoology) covers topics such as pollination, deer overpopulation, metamorphosis, symbiosis and much more.

Throughout you'll find the outrageous humor that has become Lucas' trademark. Only he would have a tadpole asking, "Does my tail look smaller to you?" or declare that buffalo dung "might be gross but it's a dirt revitalizer/ask any farmer it's great fertilizer."

Lucas' music is singable and catchy without being insipid or annoying and this is his finest collection of songs yet. Co-produced by children's music luminary Joe McDermott, you'll also hear contributions from Sara Hickman, Laura Freeman, Dave Sanger (from Asleep at the Wheel), Dan Torosian (Marcia Ball's former sax guy), Two High String Band, Darcie Deaville and more.

Uniting the songs are underlying themes of growth and mutualism. A close listen reveals a layer of hope, joy and metaphor beneath the science. Never preachy, Lucas instead chooses to inspire his audience by illuminating the connections within the natural world and the efforts humans are making to protect it.

This recording won a 2005 NAPPA "Honors" award, a fall 2005 Parents' Choice "Silver" award and was chosen as a "Parenting Pick" for music (ages 5-8) in the October 2005 issue of Parenting Magazine. School Library Journal simply says, "An Outstanding Album." For full reviews, visit www.lucasmiller.net/CD-Pupa.htm.

Especially recommended for ages 6-12. Includes a 16-page lyric booklet fully-illustrated by the amazing artist Brady Smith.

We all love this!
My family looked forward to Lucas Miller's third CD impatiently and it's everything we hoped it would be! Catchy songs, lyrics you can learn from - "kid's" music even Mom and Dad happily play in the car!

We catch ourselves singing these songs- even when the kids aren't around!
Our three boys, ages 1 through 5, all love this CD and so do we! The tunes are catchy and funny and educational! We really can't get some of these songs out of our heads! Very creative and a lot of fun!

Fun, educational. Kids like it as much as parents!
I like this CD as much as my kids do, although our favorite songs are different! Love the fact that now my 7 and 5 year olds know what an herbivore, carnivore and omnivore are. I also like the fact that the songs can be interpreted on many levels. Leads to some wonderful talks with my children. Lucas' best yet!

I originally bought the CD for my two-year old for Christmas, but couldn't wait to open it and listen to it myself! He loves listening to all the funny words and dancing around to the great music. His favorite is "Stinky, Stinky Little Skunkie"!

Great kid appeal! My 10-year old loves it!
Lucas Miller has done it again. The wide variety of muscial styles coupled with environmental messages makes this another great CD. It's got great kid appeal and is something any adult will feel good about sharing with children. My 10-year old loves it!

Don't Let This CD Pass You By!
This CD is great for the kids to have fun and learn about wildlife. My husband and I even enjoy it! You won't be disapointed with any part of this CD and all the songs are great not just one or two.

Wonderful! Great listening for the entire family!
This CD, as well as the other Mr. Miller's two others, will keep everyone in the family entertained. Not only is it great music to listen to, the message is so good and so important. My kids have learned things through these songs about habitat destruction, animal behavior and good environmental stewardship. And it makes great traveling music!

wonderful cd! definite must have!
This cd is absolutely hilarious as well as educational. What a combination! The tunes are very catchy. I even found myself humming/singing several of the songs over the weekend on a hike that I went on with a friend of mine. It was quite a site...two adults romping through the forest singing these tunes.
