The deep, enthusiastic voice of Charles Turner energizes this repetitive rhyme celebrating the life of Bill Robinson. Known by the stage name "Bojangles?" Robinson was one of America's most talented tap dancers. Dixieland jazz, city noises, and the snaps and clicks of a tap dancer are some of the sound effects that make each page come to life. Since the pacing allows time for the listener to enjoy the colorful urban details of the vibrant illustrations, the book is an essential part of the listening experience. A short afterword gives the details of this African-American dancer's life. "He didn't just dance; he made art with his feet." R.H.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
