Publisher Comments:

This is the jazzy story of a hip, saxophone playing cat who heads to the big city to seek fame and fortune. Once there, he finds that the top dogs own the cool clubs, and that sometimes you have to work at the Doggie Diner to make ends meet. But he also learns how important it is to "do what you love to do and do it well!" The rhythmic text is filled with the same ebb and flow that characterizes jazz music, and the brilliant illustrations bring alive a magical world where cool cats dig hot jazz and where, if you try hard enough, no dream is out of reach.

This is a nicely illustrated book that is fun to read aloud. It uses language creatively, with a jazz scat style represented through internal rhyming schemes. The story puts out a message about developing personal interests. We have presented this to many families with 3 - 7 year olds, and it is regulalry well received.
