Get ready to move and groove in this smooth, jazz-themed board book!

Are you ready to move and groove?

Come on now. . . . The saxophone plays the melody.



Not a jazz fan? You will be once you read this unique board book! Awesome animals illustrated in Captain Kris's fabulous graffiti-style art introduce kids to various jazz instruments and their sounds. A giraffe plays the melody on the saxophone, while an elephant takes the lead on the trumpet, a tiger growls along on the trombone, a crocodile pounds chords on the piano, a rabbit strums the guitar, a fox keeps the beat on the drums, a dog grooves on the bass, and a bear dances and claps his hands! The animals are decked out in cool jazz gear, making this an amusing visual treat!
