I have a bad Ukulele book habit. I've bought many and have several hard drives worth of tuition videos. If only Al Wood had written this book earlier my kids might not be shoeless.
The book is great, covering just about everything from scratch but not in an interminably detailed or boring manner. Chords - strumming patterns - finger picking and stylistic combinations of the above are all covered so that even a fat-fingered plucker like myself can make their Uke sound good.
Al (Mr Wood?)'s style is engaging and clear, but you may well be familiar with it from the UkeHunt website if you aren't then you probably don't have a Ukulele. Get one - get this book - get playing.
This is a fab kids book with a nice streak of dark humour. Harry Nibbler is a hare with a desire for fame. He achieves it through a series of outlandish attempts to "be different" and attract attention. All goes well until impressionable other hares start copying him. Wonderfully illustrated, cute and with a slightly sick streak that would horrify your kid's auntie running through it this is a children's tale that is a worthy successor to the darker realms of fairy stories and a cracking satire on the cult of celebrity
