Cece Bell is the author-illustrator of SOCK MONKEY GOES TO HOLLYWOOD: A STAR IS BATHED. Of SOCK MONKEY BOOGIE-WOOGIE, she says, "I had so much fun drawing Sock Monkey's fancy dance moves — picturing him shimmying the night away really made me laugh my head off. Sock Monkey is vain enough to think that he is the World's Greatest Dancer, and I agree!" Cece Bell lives with the real-life Sock Monkey and his friends, along with two dogs, one son, and her husband. She likes any dance that involves shouting the words "CHA CHA CHA!"From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2 - Sock Monkey, "the famous toy actor," has a problem: he needs a dance partner for the Big Celebrity Dance, and all of his friends are going out of town. He advertises for a good dancer, but none of the toys that audition seem to be the right fit. Then he's inspired by gifts that his traveling friends send to him. Out of a hat and sweater, a big pair of socks, and some cotton, he makes his own sidekick - another sock monkey named Sock Buddy - and teaches him to groove. Together, they have a great time at the event. This bouncy tales skips along on the strength of Bell's colorful, cartoon digital illustrations. Readers will giggle at Sock Monkey's array of failed partners - from a troll doll who's "Too funky" to a pair of chattering teeth with bad breath - and the illustrations of Sock Monkey and Sock Buddy breakdancing, doing the hula, and disco dancing take the story right over the top. All in all, this offering is as light as cotton candy. - Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
