Cool Bopper is a bebopper in the Snazzy Catz Jazz Club, losses his choppers in the beboppin' crowd. Like Charlie Parker, Cool Bopper bops hard below silver stars and blue moons of night. One evening, Cool Bopper puts down his saxophone and begins to scat: "A-BOP-BOP-BE-BOP, A-BOP-BOP-BOP " And out pop his choppers Now Cool Bopper is not the same without his choppers. He can't bop. He can't scat. He can't blow his horn. How will Cool Bopper regain his choppers? Linda Oatman High's jazzy story, with zany illustrations by John O'Brien, takes young beboppers on a wild adventure with rhythm and wordplay.
