Item No: 6460


adapted by John Feierabend, illus. by Vincent Nguyen.

This picture book is one in a series based on beloved children’s folksongs, part of John’s lifelong goal to identify and preserve the best music of our heritage for future generations.

The hilarious classic song tale of a husband who catches a crab fish to grant the wish of his ailing wife. Sing along with Jill Trinka and add creative movement.

Includes a description of the history of the song, the notation of the song, and a link to a free MP3 download of the song (see below). The song is recorded twice: the first time, the tale is completely sung, while the second time, everyone is invited to sing along on the chorus.
