The Jukebox Man by Jacqueline K. Ogburn, James Ransome

Donna drops a nickel into the jukebox. With a whirr and a click the record falls into place and Elvis begins singing Blue Suede Shoes. The jukebox flashes red, yellow, and green as she dances to the beat. Donna’s grandfather is a jukebox man. He has jukeboxes in dozens of diners, fish camps, and truck stops all over the state. Poppaw makes his rounds—changing records and fixing the machines. And as the jukeboxes throw patches of light on the floor, Donna discovers a whole new world. Jacqueline Ogburn’s engaging story and James Ransome’s sensitive paintings recapture a time when jukeboxes played the latest tunes and a young girl and her grandfather could share a special day. Jacqueline K. Ogburn’s grandfather really was a jukebox man. Her most recent picture book, The Reptile Ball, was an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists. James E. Ransome’s many books for children include The Creation, which won the Coretta Scott King Award for illustration.
