A singular story about musical insects celebrating language and the inventive spirit of jazz. Includes narration set to a jazz quartet on audio CD.
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 stirs up a solo that sets the 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 to savor time and again.
