With infectious rhythm and rhyme, musical master Wynton Marsalis opens kids' ears to the sounds around us. What's that sound? The back door squeeeeks open, sounding like a nosy mouse nearby-eeek, eeeek, eeeek! Big trucks on the highway rrrrrrrumble, just as hunger makes a tummy grrrrumble. Ringing with exuberance and auditory delights, this second collaboration by world-renowned jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis and acclaimed illustrator Paul Rogers takes readers (and listeners) on a rollicking, clanging, clapping tour through the many sounds that fill a neighbourhood. It is a great interactive title, full of sounds to echo and instruments to mimic. It is the perfect antidote to the quiet bedtime story...guaranteed to make the kids fall asleep exhilarated and exhausted! This book is jacketed.

Reviews

Rogers's pictures recall the delightful Hirschfeld tribute in the "Rhapsody in Blue" segment of Disney's "Fantasia 2000" -- kicky lines and outlines in a whirl of motion. "I huz- huzz- huzzz a kazoo when I gets the mood," the young narrator exults. Readers will huzz right along. --New York Times Onomatopoeic words will challenge readers and delight listeners . . . Rogers' hip, playfully cartoonish spreads pop with clever visual allusions to jazz tunes and players. Loud and clear, the creators show how tuning into everyday sounds can inspire music. Clap, clap, CLAP! --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Warm up those vocal chops and get ready for the swingingest read-aloud of the year. --Booklist (starred review) This exuberant articulation of sounds both subtle and grandiose is sure to inspire closer listening and creative responses. --School Library Journal (starred review) Booklist called it "the swingingest read-aloud of the year." School Library Journal made it a "pick of the day." We suspect that a lot of New Orleans Santas will be making this one a pick of the day, too. --NOLA.com (Times-Picayune)
