Ella Fitzgerald: The Tale of Vocal Virtuoso
By Andrea Pinkney
Illustrated by Brian Pinkney
Age 5-9 years
Ella Fitzgerald began her life as a singer on the stage of the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem when she was just seventeen years old. Her rich voice and vocal innovations brought her fame and a remarkable career that spanned half a century and won her generations of fans around the world.
Acclaimed author Andrea Davis Pinkney has told Ella's inspiring story in the voice of Scat Cat Monroe, a feline fan whose imagined narrative sings with the infectious rhythms of scat. Two-time Caldecott Honor winner Brian Pinkney's dramatic perspectives and fantastical images offer a jazzy improvisation all their own.
