Drummer Hoff

I finally figured out the name of a book I have been looking for for quite a while. Drummer Hoff, a beautifully illustrated childrens book about military types firing off a cannon. Best when read aloud.

General Border gave the order

Major Scott brought the shot

Captain Bammer brought the rammer

Sergeant Chowder brought the powder

Corporal Farrell brought the barrel

Private Parriage brought the carriage

but Drummer Hoff fired it off.

Lorne Elliot's Madly off in all direction on CBC Radio tends to have some great comedy. 'Tis a shame one cannot hear it online.
