C.J. needs to act fast. A photographer from Highnote magazine is on his way to photograph Uncle Click, a well-known jazz musician, but Uncle Click's signature hat is missing. Now it's up to C. J. to hunt down the hat in time for the photo shoot. Little does C. J. know that his whirlwind search through Harlem sets in motion the making of a magical moment of friendship and music.
"The characters' passion for jazz is echoed on their expressive faces and in their graceful postures, and Uncle Click's affection for his nephew shines through. A wonderful ode to the power of music and of family love." - SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
"Bright acrylics abandon realism to emphasize rhythm, elongated forms moving against backgrounds that curve, slant, and boogie-woogie—but almost never stay still. Nearly pitch-perfect." — KIRKUS REVIEWS.
