In the summer of 2005, Mary Lafleur approached Campfire Kev after a show at the Lexington Public Library in Kentucky. She said, 'I play music for kids, too' They exchanged CDs and, two weeks later, decided to record THE PET PROJECT. Inspired by the 2006 Collaborative Summer Library Program, 'Paws, Claws, Scales and Tales,' the CD contains songs about presidential pets, funny farm animals, proper pet care, plush and plastic playmates, save the day dogs, animal rescue, pets in the dewey decimal system, and more! WINNER: 2006 Parents' Choice 'Recommended' Award WINNER: TWO 2006 Children's Music Web Awards, including Best Recording for Children 5-8, and Best Song (Queen of the House.) Review: All manner of pets are celebrated from tarantulas to turtles, donkeys to dogs. The variety of songs is terrific-from toe-tapping, snappy sing-alongs like "Donkey in the Bathtub" (a new family favorite!) to more pensive tunes like "Extraordinary", about a dog who dials 911 to save her master. Mary and Kev's voices harmonize skillfully, and it's clear that they're having a great time making this music. The liner notes are sprinkled with pictures and punctuated with odd and interesting tidbits about animals and humans including the citation that Dr. Louis J. Camuti was the first veterinarian to devote his entire practice to the care of cats. Who gnu?
