When world famous drum playing rock puppy Bookaboo slams his drum sticks down grumbling ‘a story a day or I just can’t play!’, its up to celebrity fans in his audience to save the concert. Each episode a famous face goes backstage to see if they can lure Bookaboo back to his drums by sharing a picture book with him on his tourbus. Bojo restored, this puppy can play and cheered on by his celebrity guest, he wows the crowds with the best canine drum solo ever heard.
The series follows Bookaboo as he tours the globe with his bandmates Paws and Growler, playing drums to packed stadiums of adoring fans. There’s only one hitch – Bookaboo just can’t play without a story a day! The precocious pup finds creative ways to avoid performing, leading to laugh-out-loud comedy sketches and silly songs. To empower Bookaboo to return to the stage, a famous face appears in each episode to share a favorite story. The picture book that the celebrity guest brings in the special “bookabag” is brought to life through animation and an interactive, energetic reading that restores Bookaboo’s “bojo.”
The series, created by Lucy Goodman of Happy Films and produced by Happy Films and Sinking Ship Entertainment (Odd Squad, Annedroids), celebrates the fun and benefits of adults and children reading together, combining puppetry, live action and CGI animation. Each episode features a different celebrity guest, who goes “backstage” to share their favorite picture book with Bookaboo, the adorable world-famous drummer puppy and star of the show who needs to be read a book a day or he just can’t play.
