Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Morrison captures the exuberant spirit of Miz Mozetta with.dynamic illustrations that dance to the beat of a fresh, rhythmic story. Duke Ellington is right - 'It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing' - and this vivacious offering definitely does." -- Kirkus Reviews "This story proves that the love of dance has no age limits. High-stepping, whirling images complement the rhythmic dialect of jazz clubs and bring Miz Mozetta.to life 'faster than a rat can scat.' This upbeat, multigenerational tale will have broad appeal." -- School Library Journal "Words that bop and pictures that spin make this book so close to dance, readers won't be able to keep their feet from tapping." -- Publishers Weekly.

Inhaltsangabe: "Okay, young cats, let the beat hit your feet."
One fine evening, Miz Mozetta puts on her firecracker-red dress and heads outside to enjoy the moonlight. When she hears the neighborhood kids' music, she's inspired to dance, but her old friends have too many aches and pains to join her. The kids doubt that Miz Mozetta would be able to keep up with them. So she retreats to her parlor, where she dreams about the old days at the Blue Pearl Ballroom. Just when her feet are itching to get out there and do the jitterbug -- friends or no friends -- a knock comes on the door, and Miz Mozetta gets some welcome company.
Lively, colorful illustrations and a rhythmic text make for a jazzy dance party that readers will delight in attending again and again. Jazzy Miz Mozetta is the winner of the 2005 Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe New Talent Award.
