"My dream is to have a band. Wanna be in a band with me?" Jack asks his new friend, Remy the raccoon. Jack tap-tap-taps his paws as he imagines the wonderful music the creatures of the bayou can make. He can already hear the chank-a-chank of a rubboard and the thump-thump-thump of the drums, but forming a band that includes an alligator, a snake, some turtles, a bullfrog, and a possum isn't always easy! First they must overcome their distrust of their fellow creatures and learn to work together.

But what can these critters with a dream do to save themselves when danger surfaces on the bayou? When some poachers invade their home and try to capture their friends, the animals must come up with a plan.

With a little perseverance and creativity, they create music that turns enemies into friends and unites all the residents of the bayou, even making some unexpected allies along the way.

You'll fall in love with Debbi Kern's bayou animals as they "Get the bad guys on the run!"
