Jazz Fly 2: The Jungle Pachanga
Written and performed by Matthew Gollub
Illustrated by Karen Hanke
Hardcover and CD
Ages 5-8 years

CHOO-ka CHOO-ka TING. Ay, caramba!
Can one part jazz and one part Spanish make a language problem vanish?

In this sequel to The Jazz Fly, the fly's band needs a lift to the tropical pachanga, or dance party. A sloth, spider monkey and macaw are willing to help but only if the fly can first chant the right words in Spanish.

At the Latin-style nightclub, local insects adore the fly's music. But dangers lurk outside the termite nest. Scat-singing like never before, the fly unwittingly triggers an emergency that only his creativity - and newly-learned Spanish - can resolve.

Once again, Matthew Gollub has created a must hear CD that features rhythmic storytelling set to authentic, irresistible music played by a jazz quintet. Karen Hanke's witty illustrations will transport young listeners deep in to the rain forest. Jumping with bongo drums, conga drums, sax solos and more, the spirited adventure welcomes readers to Spanish (40 Spanish words and phrases woven into the English text) and Latin jazz.

I've read "The Jazz Fly" to my students in elementary school. It is an absolute favorite with them. I expect this book to be just as popular with the kids.
