Rockin' Picture Books

Here are three great children's books about rock concerts:

James, Simon. Baby Brains Superstar.
Cambridge, Mass: Candlewick Press, 2005

Krosoczka, Jarrett. Punk Farm on Tour.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2007.

Holm, Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm. Babymouse Rock Star.
New York: Random House, 2006.

And speaking of rock concerts . . .

The 4th Annual Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven Campout Music Festival is taking place right now in Pioneertown, California. (I wish Marc and I could have gone, but it's too hard to take time off in September.) Mark Petix of The Sun wrote this excellent article about the festival.

ps. Isn't this a cool a concert poster? I wish I knew the artist's name.
