The snakes of Snake Alley love their snake band. The snakes hiss and bop their tails to make a great sound together. One summer day, a cricket, frog, fish, bird, and turtle tell the littlest snake that they would like to be in a band and demonstrate their unique sounds. Snake only wants to be with his snake band until he realizes that they never sound different at all and maybe it would be nice to have the other musicians in the snake band too. The other snakes do not like his idea, so the littlest snake starts his own band with the cricket, frog, fish, bird, and turtle.
