Theo and the Blue Noteby Peter Kuper
All Theo the cat wants to do is play the sax, even though he only knows one note. But when a rocket ship equipped with a jazz-playing jukebox zooms him to the moon, Theo meets the jazz combo of his dreams-- Charlie Porker, Nat King Cobra, Duck Ellington, and more. He gets to jam with the greats, who show Theo that there's more to being a jiving cool cat than just one blue note.
Peter Kuper's one-of-a-kind illustrations--created using intricately cut stencils, spray paint, and collage--shake and shimmy across the page, just like jazz itself.
About the Author: Peter Kuper's illustrations and comics appear regularly in Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, and MAD, for which he writes and illustrates Spy vs. Spy. Mr. Kuper, shown here with his daughter, lives in New York City and Oaxaca, Mexico.
