Staff Reviews

Silly words and rocked-out rhythms that make it a giggly pleasure to read out loud.  A many-colored cast of urban kid characters, each with their own style to walk, wiggle, or play their way along the street. And a finale that looks like a Brooklyn-style block party.   I love this book in my own wokka way; you'll love it in yours.
