An owlet drumming with wooden spoons on an overturned saucepan (“BIM BAM BIM BAM BIM”) inspires another young bird to fetch a pair of pan lid cymbals (“TISH TISH”). One by one, three more avian friends join the impromptu ensemble, employing a colander, spatula, measuring spoon, and fork to add BOOM, DONG, and CLANG to the musical mix. The noise brings an adult owl to reclaim the kitchenware, in trade for a luscious treat. The final page of this onomatopoeic revelry on board pages suggests the creative crew will soon be off to their next project as they eye shelves of colorful preserves. (Ages 1–3)
