Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Thelonious the mouse has got so much rhythm in him he can't help letting it out. To his family's horror, he won't stop scatting and shimmying around the house, teasing deadly Fat Cat instead of collecting crumbs like the rest of them. But just as Thelonious's games become too dangerous, he find a most unexpected musical partner in this jaunty picture book with art and text that truly sing!</p>

Horn Book Review

Thelonious was some cool cat--for a mouse." While his parents tiptoe around feline Fat Cat, Thelonious can't stop dancing and scat-singing. Patient readers (and the text does go on) will be rewarded with the revelation that cat and mouse make beautiful music together. This tribute to jazz great Thelonious Monk features bebop-ish lines of text and comparatively subdued art. (c) Copyright 2011. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
