The lush, color-washed line drawings in the book focus on the whimsical title-song “Comptine en mode zen” (Nursery Rhyme in Zen Mode) that tells the tale of an improbable group of musicians who come together to play their instruments in old Kyoto. The curious cast includes cane-wielding Joe from Cajun land, his kimono-clad Japanese wife, their Spanish friends, a little boy with a high-pitched voice, and a Buddhist monk. Sixteen additional songs on the accompanying audio introduce zany-crazy characters such as the old lady who snorts like a hog in “La mère à Maillard” (Maillard's Mother) and a rooster who serves eggs for breakfast in “Les quatre oeufs” (The Four Eggs).
