What's Crankee Doodle About

Publisher Summary

“Yankee Doodle went to town / a-riding on a pony / stuck a feather in his hat / and called it macaroni.” Many know the song “Yankee Doodle Dandy,” but few understand it. This unapologetically silly picture book reveals the legendary ride to town—and the whole macaroni thing—was actually the work of Mr. Doodle’s overeager pony. Mr. Doodle doesn’t want any pasta or even a trip into town. No wonder he’s so cranky!

Includes a historical note.
