Synopsis
This singular story about musical insects celebrates language and the inventive spirit of jazz. The book includes an audio CD featuring the author’s rhythmic narration of the story set to a jazz quartet. A fly, who speaks jazz, asks different critters which way to town. “Rrribit,” replies the frog. “Oink,” says the hog. Although baffled, the fly hears music in their words, and that evening he uses those sounds to set the insect dinner club a hoppin.’ The computer enhanced artwork of Karen Hanke perfectly complements the text and CD. Get ready to tap, snap, and swing to the beat as Nancy the Gnat, Willie the Worm, and Sammy the Centipede take the stage. Here’s a combination of storytelling, visual art, and music for children to savor time and again.
