Drummer Hoff is a lively folk verse all about the building of a cannon. Brightly dressed in full uniform, each soldier brings a part for the remarkable machine.
Corporal Farrell brings the barrel, Sergeant Chowder brings the powder, General Border gives the order-but it's Drummer Hoff who finally fires it off and explodes the whole rhyme into a glorious burst of color.
Ed Emberley uses here bright colors over wood cut lines. The bold illustration and snappy rhythm of the verse will inspire a smart salute and march about the room.
