KIRKUS REVIEW

 Vigorously told, hilariously illustrated: the tale of three spotted friends--Henry, Sal, and Margaret (frog, moose, and duck)- -united by their twin passions for donuts and music, then reunited, after a falling out, by their mutual regard. Meeting by chance in an N.Y.C. donut shop, the three quickly discover how much they have in common, form a band, and rocket to the top--``They played for the president. They played for the Queen of England. They played for MADONNA!'' When gabby, charismatic Sal begins to hog the talk shows and inevitable movie set, Margaret and Henry split in disgust, but soon they miss one another too much to stay apart. Media-conscious readers will laugh at the droll ads and celebrity caricatures in Primavera's exuberant, cartoony illustrations, and enjoy the simple, feel-good story. (Picture book. 6-8)
