Two drifters, off to see the world / There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waiting, round the bend / My Huckleberry Friend, Moon River, and me

Follow a girl (accompanied by her teddy bear--"two drifters") as she dreams about the wide and wonderful world. Cozy scenes of pajamas and bedtime make this a perfect story to share at the end of the night.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this dreamy addition to his growing oeuvre of picture books featuring illustrated songs, Hopgood (Singing in the Rain) borrows the title's classic 1960s tune as his inspiration and text. Taking a semi-literal approach, Hopgood depicts a wispy river snaking from a sleeping girl up to the moon. Awakening, she heads out on horseback (her rocking horse come to life) to meet a guitar-toting "huckleberry friend" (teddy bear), and the "two drifters" set off along the river to see the world. Joining a procession of children and animals, they venture past many of the world's major sights-the Eiffel Tower, the Coliseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and beyond-until Moon River eventually leads them back home, with only a star as evidence of their nighttime adventure. Working with a backdrop of blues, purples, and blacks, Hopgood reprises the feel-good style of his other books to create a soothing world full of music notes, rainbows, and friendly faces. Ages 4-8.
