About this title


In this retelling of a Floridian legend, a boy learns to fiddle and later uses his music to save the forest animals from the floods caused by a hurricane

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-Against a tapestry of backwoods and cypress swamps, a tale unfolds inspired by one of north Florida's legendary fiddlers. In love with sound and rhythm, Django takes naturally to his grandfather's fiddle, charming the birds and animals in the forest roundabout, but leaving his parents and grandmother less than amused. When the birds he attracts destroy their garden and Django begins neglecting his chores, the fiddle goes back to the bottom of the family trunk. And there it lies until storm winds rage and the boy saves the animals from the flooded woods. Cech's tale resounds with the folklife of the area, as do McGinley-Nally's vibrant folk-art vignettes. A more felicitous pairing of author and artist would be hard to imagine. Using intensely vivid watercolors on naturally tinted and mottled paper, the artist creates a series of tableaux of backwoods life, richly patterned and alive with the flora and fauna of Django's world. As spirited and captivating as one of the musician's own tunes, this is a lively yarn and a fitting tribute to the folk culture of the region.
