Regardless of whether theyve heard of jazz or Art Tatum, young readers will appreciate how Parker uses simple, lyrical storytelling and colorful, energetic ink and wash illustrations to show the world as young Art Tatum might have seen it Tatum came from modest beginnings and was nearly blind, but his passion for the piano and his acute memory for any sound that he heard drove him to become a virtuoso who was revered by both classical and jazz pianists alike Included in the back matter is a biography and bibliography Would have liked of a story about his life rather than cartoons Hard to read as print was very small. Informative as well as enjoyable I will certainly share this book with my piano students His story is an inspiration to us all whether one is a musician or not. My eleven year old grandaughter liked this because she takes piano Liked the fact that it was a true story. The story of Art Tatum has been told too rarely it s a delight to have this wonderful book written by an impassioned author Even amazing is the gorgeous artwork, also done by Mr Parker Strongly recommended.
