A singular story about musical insects celebrating language and the inventive spirit of jazz. The fly speaks jazz, and is asking different critters the way to town. The frog answers "Rrribit" and the hog answers "Oink" - these answers baffle the fly, but he hears music in their words and incorporates them into a jazz solo. The included CD has narration set to a jazz quartet.
Winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award for Excellence in Publishing; also a Smithsonian Notable Book for Children.
