From the Hardcover edition.
Mary Pope Osborne recounts her latest Jack and Annie adventure. This time the duo is off to New Orleans to convince the young Louis Armstrong to share his talent with the world. As Jack and Annie experience early-twentieth-century New Orleans, Osborne intertwines details of daily life during the period with the story of the early years of the "King of Jazz." Osborne narrates at a slow but purposeful pace. She makes clear that the setting is as much a part of the story as the characters and the action. Her authentic voice speaks directly to listeners and brings her child-friendly characters to life.
