STARRED REVIEW
"If a fairy tale were set in New Orleans, this is how it would read."

— Publishers Weekly

"Sharp panels of color and image, perspective that dips and soars, and layers of mixed-media collage unite to feel like renditions of brass band music itself."

— Amina Chaudhri

"[T]his work will make for fun and thoughtful story sharing. A must-have."

— Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA

"Collier’s expressive watercolor collages layer and texture each page, creating a mix of images that echo the combination of styles Andrews uses to create his own “musical gumbo'...Read this one aloud to capture the sounds and sights of Trombone Shorty’s New Orleans."

— The Horn Book Magazine

"The storytelling is imbued with a touch of storybook glamour and generous humor...Collier’s vibrant mixed-media illustrations ably complement the text with a skillful melding of paint and photo collage that underscore the “gumbo” of street sounds and musical styles that influence Andrews’ works."

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
