Synopsis

Hip Cat by Jonathan London

This is the jazzy story of a hip, saxaphone-playing cat who heads to the big city to seek fame and fortune. Once there he finds that the top dogs own the cool clubs, and that sometimes you have to work at the Doggie Diner to make ends meet. But he also learns how important it is to do what you love and do it well!

Reviews

-- School Library Journal,

Starred Review, August 16, 1993 Only squares won't dig the beatnik slang and improvisational rhymes of this beboppable, unstoppable tale. Sax-playing cat Oobie-do takes the train to San Francisco, where he tries to make jazzzzzy music. But being a musician doesn't pay the bills, and Oobie-do becomes a short-order cook at the Doggie Diner. He doesn't stay down on his luck for long, though

their unsullied bright colors, smooth edges and serpentine forms are reminiscent of such jazz-inspired abstract canvases as Stuart Davis's The Mellow Pad. Playful and optimistic, this story of dreams--and persistence rewarded--is the cool cat's meow. Ages 3-8. -- HORN BOOK,
