Ships from and sold by Debra D's Books. Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). On a steamy, summer day in the city-effectively evoked in Geter's (Dawn and the Round To-It) intentionally hazy but occasionally static oil paintings-Willie Jerome sits on the roof and blows his trumpet. Mama say he be up there making noise. I say he be up there making music," declares Willie's sister Judy, the cheerful African American girl who sings out this melodic if repetitious story.

Young Willie Jerome is up on the roof of a Harlem tenement blowing his horn. Willie Jerome doesn't let them down

Young Willie Jerome is up on the roof of a Harlem tenement blowing his horn. The trills and riffs are sweet music to his sister Judy's ears, but no one else in the neighborhood is moved: not the grocer, not the stoop sitters, not his brother, and especially not his mother. Narrator Judy bebops to the melody; she tries to convince others to give his hot rooftop jazz a chance, but all they hear is a lot of noise. Willie Jerome doesn't let them down. Duncan's sharp, laconic text is appealingly cadenced-a smart prose poem where every word has a purpose: & been groovin' to his noonday songs. That's why I got this smile on my face. That's why I got this bop in my stride.

Author: Alice Faye Duncan; Illustrated by Tyrone Geter. Title: Willie Jerome. Plot: Judy loves the sound of her brother's (Willie Jerome) "sizzlin' red hot bebop" sound he plays on the rooftop of his house.

When Willie Jerome plays his summer jazz on the rooftop, everyone considers it just noise, except his sister Judy, who tries to convince everyone of how good it is and who finally gets Mama to listen to Willie Jerome seriously.

A very rhytmic and meaningful children's book. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 22 years ago. I purchased this book after seeing the author read it live here in Memphis. I found that the story has a very compelling message that reaches children and adults alike. She really gets into it.
