On a remote island called Bananaland, the Jolly Mon uses his beautiful voice and an enchanted guitar to lure fish from the ocean and bring happiness to all. But these gifts can't save him from treacherous pirates. For that, he will need the help of a very special dolphin.
A perfect gift for Jimmy Buffett fans young and old, this beloved tale is now packaged as a hardcover book with a reading by Jimmy Buffett accompanied by an original musical score performed by his lead musicians.
About the Author
Singer/songwriter/author Jimmy Buffett has become a legend of popular culture as the composer of such classic songs as "Margaritaville" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise." He has recorded more than thirty albums, most of which have gone gold, platinum, or multiplatinum, and his sold-out concert tours are an annual rite of summer for his fans. In addition to his musical credits, Buffett is also one of only six authors who have had number-one New York Times bestsellers in both fiction (Where Is Joe Merchant?) and nonfiction (A Pirate Looks at Fifty).
From Our Editors
Best known as a songwriter and performer, Jimmy Buffett is also an accomplished mariner who has sailed across most of the world. This book combines his vast knowledge of oceanic folklore with his own experiences sailing with his eight-year-old, Savannah Jane. Full-color illustrations
"Bright ebullient paintings easily capture the sunshine and sea breezes of the warm climate; the Jolly Mon's smile is winsome; and children familiar with the Buffett song on which the story is based will enjoy meeting him all the more."--Booklist
