Inspired by the vibrant primary colors and simple geometric beauty of Mondrian's breathtaking "Broadway Boogie Woogie" and infused with the sounds that defined the boogie woogie era, this debut work by artist-illustrator Laura Ann Trimble Elbogen takes young readers on a colorful journey across Broadway. Latte the Dalmatian has been asked to help create the perfect wedding by assembling the best boogie woogie band ever, guiding them on a joyous parade past some of NYC's best landmarks. Can she make it to the wedding on time?
Kids will love every minute they spend with Latte, clapping, tapping and counting along as Latte leads the band on an unforgettable adventure, while learning about the roots of early jazz and the colorful wonders of Mondrian's abstract art. In the end, they'll discover what makes life like a parade - the one you lead for yourself is the best one of all.
