Publisher Comments:

SNAP!and#160;BOMP!and#160;BEEDLE-DI-BOP!and#160;In this toe-tapping jazz tribute, the traditional "This Old Man" gets a swinging makeover, and some of the era's best musicians take center stage. The tuneful text and vibrant illustrations bop, slide, and shimmy across the page as Satchmo plays one, Bojangles plays two . . . right on down the line to Charles Mingus, who plays nine, plucking strings that sound "divine."

Synopsis:

Music and the alphabet have always gone together. Don't kids learn their letters by singing the ABCs? But you've never seen--or heard--a musical alphabet like this one. Beloved tunes. Unusual instruments. Legendary virtuosos. From anthems to zydeco, the language of music and the music of language harmonize in one superb symphony. It's a funky fusion for songsters of all ages! Includes endnotes.

Synopsis:

Playful text opens up the world of music and the alphabet to younger readers, and conversational endnotes offer older readers a springboard to further musical explorations, in this "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year. Full color.

Synopsis:

A be-bopping, toe-tapping introduction to nine well-known jazz musicians
