”Little Melba and Her Big Trombone” av Katheryn Russell-Brown med illustrationer av Frank Morrison (2014) Bilderbok baserad på en sann historia! ”Melba Doretta Liston loved the sounds of music from as far back as she could remember. As a child, she daydreamed about beats and lyrics, and hummed along with the music from her family s Majestic radio. At age seven, Melba fell in love with a big, shiny trombone, and soon taught herself to play the instrument. By the time she was a teenager, Melba s extraordinary gift for music led her to the world of jazz. She joined a band led by trumpet player Gerald Wilson and toured the country. Overcoming obstacles of race and gender, Melba went on to become a famed trombone player and arranger, spinning rhythms, harmonies, and melodies into gorgeous songs for all the jazz greats of the twentieth century: Randy Weston, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, and Quincy Jones, to name just a few. Brimming with ebullience and the joy of making music, Little Melba and Her Big Trombone is a fitting tribute to a trailblazing musician and a great unsung hero of jazz.” Förlagsinformation Språk: Engelska Antal sidor: 40 Utg.datum: 2014-07-01 Förlag: Lee & Low Books Illustratör: Frank Morrison ISBN:...

Pelé

”For the Love of Soccer! av Pelé, bilder Frank Morrison ”What does the world’s greatest soccer player love about the game? The same things as we do! Speed, team work, dribbling, passing, taking your best shot—and making a G-O-O-A-A-A-L! Pelé, three-time World Cup champion, has been the subject of several unauthorized biographies. But here, in his own words, he celebrates the kick and thrill of his favorite sport. Artist Frank Morrison scores an amazing assist with two dynamic visual stories: Pelé’s inspiring rise to fame, and a young athlete’s efforts to follow in his hero’s speedy footsteps. Together, words and pictures deliver all the fun and excitement of a closely-matched game. World Cup fans, come play!” Förlagsinformation Antal sidor: 32 pages Publisher: Disney-Hyperion Utgivningsår: 2010 Language: English ISBN-10: 1423115384 ISBN-13: 978-1423115380 Läsålder: 5-10.
