A trip to the marionette stage at the park where there is a new puppeteer. He brings no joy, and the plays go badly. This book accompanies a song, and also a read along recording which are available free online or on a CD which may be purchased from the author. Grandpa Doc calls this a "tragic tale" and describes this idea to the reader in the recording. This book could be enjoyed by any age group, but may be best suited to sixth grade and up where they might be ready to study stories that benefit from some deeper analysis. This book began as a rhyming song, then became a book. The lyrics, chords, and musical score are included in the book.
