Description

The be-boppin' fly and his band are back! Ever hear musical insects play jazz on a cruise ship? Then check out this latest adventure in the critically-acclaimed Jazz Fly series and winner of two First Place Dragonfly book awards! It pairs the Jazz Bugs with marine mammals; reggae with cha-cha-chá in a beautifully illustrated, 40-page showcase. Includes CD and audio download. And how about acquainting your children with some phrases in Spanish and French? It's "fabuloso" and "magnifique" and easier than you may think. Trust Matthew Gollub to broaden their horizons while keeping kids boppin' on the edge of their seats. (Don't worry, the fun words in French and Spanish are color coded!) Music fans ages 6 and up LOVE this author's narrations set to jazz and are known to ask to hear them again and again. Here's what sets this ocean adventure in motion: Captain Cockroach leaves the helm to write poetry, and the luxury liner veers off course. Parents appreciate that the Jazz Bugs show kindness and pool their ingenuity when faced with challenges. And for those interested in learning about the Caribbean region, the book includes an author's note and an attractive glossary of foreign words used. Ideal for ages 6-9, and for music teachers, reading teachers and families that enjoy both music and books!

WINNER of two 1st Place Purple Dragonfly Book Awards (Picture Book for 6 and older; Arts and Music categories)

Advance Praise

“The inclusion of Spanish and French is seamless, especially when pronounced by Gollub and the other performers. Hanke's bright, eye-catching illustrations are sure child pleasers...A sure hit for jazz fans who like to dance along with their read-alouds.”
Kirkus Reviews

“The story is about a musical fly and his band who perform jazz chants with French and Spanish words aboard an international cruise ship. But when the lovesick Captain Cockroach abandons the helm to write poetry, only the band's Caribbean jazz can prevent a full-scale panic - and then a thunderstorm makes matters even worse! Music educators will find that Jazz Fly 3 incorporates rare time signatures when the fly counts to three, five, and seven in French. An author's note and a glossary of French and Spanish words round out this delightful multimedia showcase, highly recommended especially for music-loving children. Jazz Fly 3: The Caribbean Sea also makes a great family gift!”
—Jim Cox, Midwest Book Review

“As fun to read as it is to listen to on the accompanying CD or download. Between its colorful, dynamic illustrations and clever linguistic elements, Jazz Fly 3 is truly magnifique.”
—Laura Leavitt, Foreword Reviews

—Julianne (Black) DiBlasi, Story Monsters Ink

Jazz Fly 3 is fun AND educational. While kids are dancing around to be-bop, reggae and cha-cha-chá, they are learning easy words in French, Spanish and "Jazz." And they are learning about kindness. These Jazz Fly books are a hit!”
