Charlie Parker was a great saxophone player. He played a kind of jazz called be bop. Meet Charlie Parker in this musical book and chant such phrases as "fisk fisk" and "Boppitty, bibbitty, bop. BANG!" The colorful, bold illustrations reinforce the bouncy humorous tone. This book is a great introduction to jazz and should definitely be read aloud to get the full rhythmic effect.
