Thousand Star Hotel by the Okee Dokee Brothers

thousand star hotelGrammy® Award-winning duo The Okee Dokee Brothers are back with their second book THOUSAND STAR HOTEL which comes out TODAY!! They’ve created a fanciful story—inspired by the folktale “The Fisherman and His Wife”—about the things we wish for . . . and the things we really need.

Once upon a time there were two muskrats who lived near a big old river. Mr. Muskrat dreamt of catching enough fish to make them rich; Mrs. Muskrat was happy if they caught enough for a good supper. Then, one day, they reel in a giant golden catfish who promises to grant one wish if they set him free. The two muskrats agree to let the fish off the hook and he does keep his word . . . but in a most unexpected and magical way!

Includes an 11-song CD and audiobook read by The Okee Dokee Brothers!
