The creators of Jazz ABZ are back for an encore! With infectious rhythm and rhyme, musical master Wynton Marsalis opens kids' ears to the sounds around us.

What's that sound? The back door squeeeaks open, sounding like a noisy mouse nearby -- eeek, eeeek, eeeek! Big trucks on the highway rrrrrrrumble, just as hunger makes a tummy grrrrumble . Ringing with exuberance and auditory delights, this second collaboration by world-renowned jazz musician and composer Wynton Marsalis and acclaimed illustrator Paul Rogers takes readers (and listeners) on a rollicking, clanging, clapping tour through the many sounds that fill a neighborhood.

Lovely! Dynamic artwork illustrates this exploration of the musicality of different noises in everyday life.

With lots of onomatopoeia and crisp, boldly outlined retro illustrations in a palette of teal, gold, and orange, this noisily upbeat book explores the way that ordinary sounds - a belly rumbling, a squeaking door - can be mimicked by or transformed into music.
