The hip narration of Scat Cat (Andrea Pinkney), the captivating illustrations of Brian Pinkney, and the music that bears her name bring Ella Fitzgerald vividly to life for young listeners. From the beginning moments when she was too stage frightened to dance--so she sang instead--to the Savoy’s Battle of the Bands and on to Carnegie Hall with Dizzy Gillespie, Ella set the musical world on fire. Scat and Williams tell the story stage-side with rhymes and rhythms that underscore the story and play against the musical accompaniment. Listeners will want to hear more of Ella and her music. A.R.
