No lions are lying down with the lambs today, no sir! They're bopping to the swingin' sax sounds of that cool cat Jazz-Bo!
and HOP HOP HOP,
we like to bo-bip
and do-wop the bop.
We be boppin',
There ain't no stoppin'
'til we be FLOPPIN'.
Grab your partner and your bobby socks and come on down to the sock hop. Join doodle-wopping frogs and swooping looping loons in the hip-hop-happen'est dance--and book--in town! Jonathan London's rhythmic text could only be called music, and Henry Cole's shakin' snakes, hoppin' hares, and piano-pounding pooches positively beckon readers to join in the fun. It goes without saying that this book absolutely must be read aloud, preferably in a room with all the furniture pushed against the walls and the carpets rolled up. "Hip-hop DOODLE-WOP--let's go!"
London is the author of more than 40 books for children, among them the popular Froggy series. Cole, too, is well loved for his marvelous talent as revealed in such wonderful and wacky titles as Some Smug Slug and The Wacky Wedding. (Ages 3 to 8) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
Jonathan London, who lives in Graton, California, prefers sandals to shoes, but he knows that nothing beats socks for dancing. When he's ready to put the extra slip in his slide, he kicks off his flip-flops and puts on some tube socks. When Jonathon isn't a sensation on the dance floor, he is a rage on the page with over forty books for children to his credit, including Froggy Gets Dressed, Hip Cat, Like Butter on Pancakes, and Puddles. He lives with his wife and two sons.
Henry Cole is the celebrated illustrator of many books for children, including the Bad Boys series by Margie Palatini, and is also the author and illustrator of the novel A Nest for Celeste.
