With a text that flows like the lyrics to a great song, and lush, atmospheric illustrations that bring the characters to life, the second of Alligator Slim’s adventures helps even the youngest of fans see themselves in this story of acceptance and overcoming prejudice. Alligator Slim and his jazz band have played themselves out—so it’s back to the swamp for Slim. His band has decided to take a break, enjoy time with family, and in one year meet again to make more movin’, groovin’ music. As Slim heads back to the big city, someone catches his ear. It’s a croonin’ baboon! Slim brings Baboon Crooner with him to meet his friends and join the band. When it’s time for the band’s first performance with their newest member, she’s not what the audience expected! Will they accept Baboon and her oh-so-smooth croons?

Samuel E. Pittman II pens stories with meaning that are easy for the youngest of readers to grasp. He earned a BA in English with a minor in coaching from Texas A&M. A teacher who enjoys the combination of jazz playing and pencils writing in his middle-school English language arts class, Pittman is just the man to write about Alligator Slim and his jazz band. He lives in College Station, Texas, and spends his free time watching sports, listening to music, reading and writing, playing chess, brewing tea, and gardening—where he’s always keeping an ear out for crooning critters! As a former artist at Hallmark Studios, Sheila Bailey knows all about creating images that celebrate happy times as well as ones that help people get through difficult changes and struggles. She earned a degree in graphic design from San José State University and worked at Will Vinton Studios, creating animations. Bailey lives on Sauvie Island, Oregon, with her family, where she spends a lot of time going on calls for the fire department and working in her orchard.
