The Lovereading4Kids comment

Young listeners will love to join in with this ebullient picture book exploring sounds through its lively text and colourful illustrations. All the animals express themselves by playing their instruments. When they join together they play a lively jig which gets everyone’s toes tapping in a wonderful night time, rooftop adventure.

Synopsis

Can You Dance to the Boogaloo? by Alice Lickens

The colourful creatures pick up instruments, gathering in number and dancing through the pages finishing off with a dancing-on-the-rooftops night scene. The rhythmical approach sets the pace to the jig and is complemented by the sounds of both the instruments and animals wraparound. Children can also learn the names and sounds of the instruments seen through the pages and join in, in their own way, with the veritable hullabaloo.

Alice Lickens is the second UK recipient of the prestigious Sendak Fellowship.
