About the Book

Ella Fitzgerald began her life as a singer on the stage of the Apollo Theater when she was just seventeen years old.

Her rich voice and vocal innovations brought her fame and a remarkable career than spanned half a century and won her generations of fans around the world.

Acclaimed author Andrea Davis Pinkney has told Ella’s inspiring story in the voice of Scat Cat Monroe, a feline fan whose imagined narrative sings with the infectious rhythms of scat.

Two-time Caldecott Honor winner Brian Pinkney’s dramatic perspectives and fantastical images offer a jazzy improvisation all their own.

A Few Reviews:

“I am an elementary school music teacher, and I purchased this book as part of a lesson on Ella Fitzgerald. It’s a little long for the little ones, but we can make it through. The upper grades love all the facts about Ella that are found in the book, and I love the “Scat Cat Monroe” narrator. This is a wonderful book to educate children about Ella. And EVERYONE needs to know about her!”

This book, in both words and illustrations, is utterly gorgeous. It builds a beautiful, and accurate, picture of the life of one of the greatest jazz legends. Highly recommend this to all ages.
