This fun tale follows Tall Papa Tom, Pretty Mama May, Sweet Sister Isabelle, Little Buddy Earl, and other friends, as they make their way to the Peach Pickin’ Festival. Each time they pass a field, Little Buddy Earl yodels and watches as a crop grows gigantic. His singing skills soon come in handy when he turns a tiny peach into a great big fruit. But how will they ever pick that giant, juicy peach for the Festival?

A fresh twist on a Russian folktale, Giant Peach Yodel! underscores the importance of teamwork, while proving that sometimes the smallest person can be the biggest help. The book also includes a recipe for Little Buddy Earl’s Peach Cobbler.
