ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Winner of a Parents’ Choice approved Award, and received a nomination for the
Western Canadian Music Award...

Meet a cuddly sasquatch, hear Puss in Boots sing his story, and bark with the cows in "The
World of Odd." With story songs, crazy critters and tales of fantasy, kids will be singing
along and getting active. No one can sit still for the Stand Sit game and songs just march
along with the Ants, in this 18 song recording by the multilple award-winning, children's
songwriting duo of LuLu and the TomCat.

1. Hocus Pocus 2:14
Here's a song to put a little magic in your life. Haven't you always wondered what you would do if you had a magic wand?

2. Imagine That! 3:57
Say the magic words and become anything you can imagine. This great call-and-response song helps to pass the time on a car trip to adventure-land!

3. The Stand Sit Song 2:59
Stand up to bullies! Stand up when you hear the word "stand" and sit when you hear the word "sit" and you can join in the game.

4. The Grasshopper and the Ant 3:14
This engaging, well-known Jean de la Fontaine fable is retold with flair. But the ending may surprise you!

5. The Octopus Boogie 3:10
Get up and dance the Octopus Boogie with Ollie Octopus and her underwater friends. The actions are in the words so everyone can boogie!

6. The Bison of Snow 3:59
The Bison of Snow in the sky brings peace to the fighting beaver and hare clans.

7. I Met a Sasquatch 2:44
The Sasquatch is very shy but also super soft and cuddly. Here's the story of how LuLu and the TomCat once met a sasquatch in Horndean, Manitoba.

8. Whoo Are You? 3:27
Have you ever tried to sound like an owl? Whoo... me? You can try to whoo too on your owling adventure!

9. Puss in Boots 5:14
All you really need in life's a cat. Puss in Boots sings about his adventures with the magical ogre and the brave princess!

10. The Ants Go Marching 3:39
Here's a new twist on an old story! Learn the real facts about ants through this rhythmic counting song as you march your way down to their colony together. (Live the song through the accompanying Sing-a-book's captivating pictures.)

11. The Saber-Tooth Poet 2:41
The saber-tooth cat is known for his bite but his rhymes are chiseled in the Ice Age! Find out why he lives to rhyme. Kids love the cute pictures in the accompanying Sing-a-book!

12. Pick Up Your Garbage 3:21
Let's help keep our world clean. Sing out loud to tell everyone to take care of the environment.

13. Teeny Tiny Boo 2:39
You'll love this Hallowe'en song with a teeny, tiny boo. Get to know the real "Boo" in the accompanying Sing-a-Book.

14. Go, Go, Manipogo! 4:32
Manipogo is the name of a marine creature spotted in Lake Manitoba. It looks like a huge dragon with a head like a horse. Could it be a plesiosaur?

15. The Scroobious Pip 4:39
Edward Lear never finished this odd poem so LuLu and the TomCat finished it. All the animals in the world discover a strange creature - part bird, beast, insect and fish. It's called the Scroobious Pip.

16. Ah, les crocodiles 3:58
Find out how the crocodile and the elephant learn to live together in this traditional French song.

17. The World of Odd 3:17
What an odd place for a school field trip! Play along with this active song by doing "animal yoga" poses as you hear the animal's names and sounds.

18. Belle Isabelle 3:44
How do the stars light up at night? Belle Isabelle will lead you on her nighttime flight to the sky. As you hear her magical story of visiting the constellations, follow her journey through her own special Sing-a-book.

The World of Odd. Performed by Lulu and the Tomcat. CD. approx. 64 min. AV Card. 2012. ISBN unavail. $14.98.

PreS-Gr 3--The award-winning Canadian duo is joined by "The Mews" chorus, made up of three girls, on their seventh album. Singing in rock, folk, polka, boogie, country, jazz, and Celtic musical styles, the band performs both original and traditional folk songs. In "Hocus Pocus," a child wants to clean his room with a magic wand. "Imagine That" includes imagining pirate treasure, mermaids, and wizards. "The Stand Sit Song" is a fun game that asks listeners to sit and stand when they hear those words in the song; listeners must watch out for words like "bySTANDer." "The Grasshopper and the Ant," "The Bison of Snow," "Puss in Boots," "Teeny Tiny Boo," "The Scroobious Pip," and "Belle Isabelle" (which has a beautiful, haunting tune in a minor key) are all stories in song. "The Ants Go Marching" and "Ah, Les Crocodiles" are traditional folk songs. In the "World of Odd," a class that visits an odd farm can hear the cow bark, the pig quack, and the cat oink. Other songs include "Octopus Boogie," "I Met a Sasquatch," "Whoo Are You?" (with yodels), "Saber-Tooth Poet," "Pick Up Your Garbage," and "Go, Go Manipogo!" (also on their 2009 album, Fossil Rock). A fun and energetic album.--Beverly Wrigglesworth, San Antonio Public Library, TX

Review:

Looking for the joy and silliness of childhood? Look no further than LuLu and the TomCat's The World of Odd. This compilation of songs incorporates simple harmonies and toddler-friendly themes into one album of goofy fun. Be transported to a magical world for little ones that is filled with humorous characters and animal themes. Experience the broad spectrum of musical inspirations including the twangy country "Octopus Boogie" and the classic march of "The Ants Go Marching..."

The inclusion of the French "Ah, Les Crocodiles" is characteristic of the unique audience that this duo seeks to entertain. Experience the true World of Odd by resigning your sanity to this amusing collection.
