About the AuthorLeonard Jenkins has illustrated many books, including Sweet Land of Liberty, Champions on the Bench: The Cannon Street YMCA All-Stars; The Best Beekeeper of Lalibela; and Langston's Train Ride. He lives in New York.
Roxane Orgill played the violin as a child and concentrated on music history and theory in college and graduate school. She has been a music critic for more than twenty years, writing for the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Bergen County (New Jersey) Record, the Milwaukee Journal, and Billboard. She is also the author of the picture book If I Only Had a Horn: Young Louis Armstrong. Ms. Orgill lives with her husband and young daughter in Hoboken, New Jersey.
"Orgill tells the story of a boy overcoming incredible odds to achieve his dream, without becoming too dark, maudlin or even overly hopeful, and Jenkins's dark palette looks the way jazz sounds." Publishers Weekly, Starred
