Discover the furry, snorting, slithering animals of Bob Dylan's classic song "Man Gave Names to All the Animals." Ever since its release on his epochal album Slow Train Coming, this gospel-influenced song with a rhythmic beat has captivated young and old alike. Now a new generation can appreciate it as a story in an enchanting book adaptation, brimming with Jim Arnosky's brilliant illustrations that capture the natural world and the irrepressible humor of Bob Dylan's lyrics. This marvelous keepsake volume comes with a CD of the song so that everyone can sing along with him and shout out the animal names at the end of every verse.
Whimsical and witty, “Man Gave Names to All the Animals” first appeared on Bob Dylan's album Slow Train Coming in 1979. Illustrator Jim Arnosky has now crafted a stunning picture book adaptation of Dylan's song that's a treat for both children and adults, with breathtaking images of more than 170 animals plus a CD of Dylan's original recording. The revered musical legend rarely allows his songs to be illustrated, and Arnosky has done the song proud with a parade of spectacular creatures ready to receive their names-until the surprise ending, when children get to name an animal themselves!
