Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born into a travelling gypsy family, young Django Reinhardt taught himself guitar at an early age. He was soon acclaimed as the "Gypsy Genius" and "Prodigy Boy," but one day his world changed completely when a fire claimed the use of his fretting hand. Folks said Django would never play again, but with passion and perserverance he was soon setting the world's concert stages ablaze.
 
Bonnie Christensen's gorgeous oil paintings and jazzy, syncopated text perfectly depict the man and his music.
