Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band

Kwame Alexander (author), Tim Bowers (illustrator)

Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781410308368

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. Acoustic Rooster calls on friends like pianist Duck Ellington, singer Bee Holiday, and percussionist piggy Pepe Ernesto Cruz. Together, the foursome makes beautiful music as they rock the barnyard. And while they may not win first prize, Acoustic Rooster realizes he has the world's best jazz band and that's all that matters. Colorful artwork from artist Tim Bowers (Memoirs of a Goldfish) ensures this story doesn't miss a beat. A glossary of musical terms and instruments rounds out this perfect introduction to jazz for young readers. Kwame Alexander is a poet, publisher, and an award-winning producer of literary programs.

Ozzie and the Art Contest

Dana Sullivan (author), Dana Sullivan (illustrator)

Publisher: Sleeping Bear Press ISBN: 9781627530392

Ozzie loves to draw. Ozzie loves drawing and being an artist more than anythingeven more than skateboarding! So when his teacher, Miss Cattywhompus, announces an art contest, Ozzie cant wait to get started. He works really hard on his picture of a goat. He knows it will win first place. There is only one problem. Miss Cattywhompus didn't ask the class to draw pictures of goats; the contest instructions say "Draw a Boat." Ozzies picture doesn't win first place. And even though it does win honorable mention, he is devastated. How could he not win? He worked so hard. With a little help from Miss Cattywhompus, Ozzie comes to see that he, with his love of art, has won something far more important than a contest. In his picture book debut, Dana Sullivan has used his personal experience with artistic disappointment to create a warm, lovable character whose story will feel familiar to anyone who has followed his or her passion and hit an ever-so-slight bump in the road.
