    Two celebrated artists, Sandra Boynton and Yo-Yo Ma, come together for Jungle Night, a soothing bedtime board book.

    (Okay, MOSTLY soothing.)This board book guides us through the jungle to hear the distinctive, gentle snore of each animal: �Listen to the tiger: ZEEE-ZOOO-HAAA. Listen to the cheetah: CHEE-CHEE-TAAAH." A free downloadable recording at JungleNight.com offers a narration of the book, with each and every animal snore interpreted by the expressive, playful cello of Yo-Yo Ma. He even does the elephant's stop-the-show snore-though admittedly that took Ma's cello PLUS the classic horn salute of the James R. Barker steamship. (Seriously.) All this fabulousness leads into the coolest lullaby ever: �Jungle Gymnopédie No. 1," a polyrhythmic jungle-y arrangement by Boynton of Erik Satie's renowned piece, with Yo-Yo Ma on cello, guitar played by Ron Block of Alison Krauss Union Station, and drums by Kevin MacLeod. �Yo-Yo and I chose this piece because it's the most gorgeous and mesmerizing night song imaginable," explains Boynton. �And there was surely nothing else that could get those animals back to sleep after that elephant blast."
