9780060571917: Bebop Express

The whistle's a-blowin',
the engine's a-pumpin' --
conductors are dancin'
and passengers jumpin'!
Quick! Climb aboard
the Bebop Express.

This rockin', rhythmic railroad adventure celebrates the uniqueness of America and the beboppin', doo-woppin' sound of jazz, from jammin' New York City all the way to New Orleans. With bold, powerful art by the "New York Times" best-selling team of Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher, H. L. Panahi's text comes alive with a pulse and beat all its own.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. There are a number of picture books that try to express the rhythms and power of jazz. This one does it better than many. Here the beat of jazz is tied into something children can relate to, the sound of the railroad train moving down the tracks from New York to New Orleans. Dense collage artwork is an essential part of the experience. This train is the Bebop Express, and passengers are rushing to climb aboard. A sax man's "blee blah, doot doot bah!" mingles with the chug of the "Choo! Choo!" At the Philly stop, a man beats his drum so fast that his arms are everywhere. Each stop brings another instrument, and in St. Louis, Song Lady's voice is as rich as buttermilk. In New Orleans, all the musicians jam. The rhyme of the text is punctuated by the sounds, but for kids to really get this, there should be music in the background. The terrific artwork needs no backup. The intricate collages use old photographs and vintage fabrics to obtain a unique look. Teeming with life, the art visually complements the noisy text; both say jazz. Ilene Cooper
