Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band
by Kwame Alexander (Author) and Tim Bowers (Illustrator)
Booktalk: When a jazz-loving rooster sets his sights on winning a barnyard talent show, he realizes he can’t do it as a solo act. He’s up against the talents of Mules Davis’s cool duo and Ella Finchgerald’s singing group. (Music glossary and jazz timeline in the back matter.)
Acoustic Rooster’s band performed
a bossa nova tune.
“The Hen from Ipanema” made
the barnyard chickies swoon.
