Turducken! The book!

Were you hoping to “book” Ms. Kat’s Music for a kids’ concert?
You’ll need to click HERE.
This page exists because Ms. Kat wrote and illustrated
her own song-and-storybook!
You can buy it with a CD if you order it here!



Hey, hey, hey!  Hosting Thanksgiving guests can be tough.  Especially when the main course doesn’t agree to be served.  Sing along with Ms. Kat’s fun story about pursuit, escape, and success.

“Turducken” is Ms. Kat’s first publication to transform an original song into a storybook!  This 46-page, full-color, illustrated paperback began as lyrics to a Thanksgiving parody of the tune “Turkey in the Straw,” which was pretty much the only song Ms. Kat had learned to play on her mountain dulcimer.  Her preschool classes LOVED learning how to make chicken clucks, duck quacks, and disturbingly realistic turkey gobbles, and their classroom teachers found themselves singing it aloud for DAYS.

Turducken is available LOCALLY  or ORDERED FROM THIS WEBSITE* with a CD which includes a read-along, a sing-along song recorded with the fantastic Joe McDermott, and four “kitchen table” demo recordings of some of Ms. Kat’s other original songs!

*Amazon, B&N, and Kindle versions include the story ONLY.

Order yours today!

Available at Austin’s own BookPeople, Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com, and Kindle!



Turducken: Book + CD

Live outside of Austin, TX?



This all started with “Turducken,” the video!

And “Turducken” the fundraiser!

Followed by “Turducken” the thank you list!
(Here’s the important part.)

My most heartfelt gratitude goes out to the friends, family, and fellow musicians who want to see my publication of “Turducken” the book succeed!  A resounding “Meow, meow!” to you all!

These folks helped offset the cost of printing, making the end-product affordable to all!  Thank you for supporting small business and live music in Austin, Texas.
