Ref: 2808

Another stunning little bio. in this series, this time focusing on Ella Fitzgerald, from her harsh early life (described in a way which is cleverly pitched to the young reader), to her first steps on the jazz club scene, to her solo career as the First Lady of Song. Discover how she played her voice like an instrument, inventing new words -"Dubi-dubi-dubu-daba"- and singing across genres from pop to blues. As with other titles in the series, the book ends with a fuller biographical note with archive photos. 'Yes, yes, yes!! I want the whole set! It is always powerful to see mighty women represented in books. To have a whole set of diverse women is great.' (Sonia, Deputy Primary Head, Letterbox Library reviewer.), Age 5-8, Hardback 26pp
