The Old Cotton Blues book. Linda England's rhythmic prose and Teresa Flavin's energetic illustrations create a story that will have readers humming and dancing along with Dexter.

The Old Cotton Blues book.

by Linda England & illustrated by Teresa Flavin. The illustrations and design of the book are all of a piece: City doorways and interiors are stylized; the people are portrayed with skill, while Dexter, in particular, is animated and easy to identify with. A depiction of Johnny's deceased father, blowing on the harmonica in heaven, is an effective evocation of the joy of music, and the distinctively African faces of the angels are radiantly done.

Besides his mama and the smell of pork chops frying, Dexter's greatest love is the sound of Old Johnny Cotton's clarinet playing the blues, with which he dreams of playing along, if only he could afford an instrument.

Mohn
This is a truly wonderful book. It will, someday, be regarded as a classic.
Ms. England's writing style and expert prose, mimic the beat and rhythm of music itself.
A superbly written story - children (and adults) will adopt this book as a lifetime favorite.

Just delightful as a read-aloud. Bring some blues for the kids to listen to.

The story is about a little boy who wants a clarinet but his family cannot afford one. A friend passes down a harmonica and Dexter practices playing it until he can play the blues.
