Ben's Trumpet

Written and illustrated by Rachel Isadora

  • 1979 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book (Picture Book)
  • 1980 Caldecott Medal Honor Book

The story of Ben is fiction, but it could be the story of more than one jazz musician who grew up in the twenties. Using the art-deco style of the period, Rachel Isadora not only captures the poignancy and yearning of a youthful talent, but in page after page of striking art seems to convey the very sound of music.
