About this title:

Synopsis:

Legendary jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman`s life is a classic AmericanCinderella story. Born into a large family (12 kids! ) Of poor Jewish immigrants,Benny was given his first clarinet in fourth grade. His sweet, supportivefather, David, hoped that young Benny and his siblings could make a better lifefor themselves than their parents had. Quiet Benny liked playing his clarinetmore than he liked talking. It wasn`t long before he was playing music innightclubs with grown men, astounding audiences with his hot, beautiful jazzsounds. Benny`s father`s dream for his son paid off--but sadly, not before Davidwas tragically killed. Benny poured his grief into his music; as a result, the" King of Swing" is still heard around the world in dozens of recordings from the1930s to the 1980s. Jonah Winter and Jeanette Winter have created a lively tribute to one ofAmerica`s true musical greats. Jonah Winter writes in short, clean sentences,telling Goodman`s story with respect and quiet humor. Jeanette Winter`s colorfulearly-American style illustrations charmingly reflect the era that produced thisbrilliant musician. The mother-son team has also written a wonderful biographyabout artist Diego Rivera, called Diego. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
