Jonny Hannah has enjoyed considerable success as a graphic artist since his graduation in 1999. His work has appeared in national and international publications, as well as in advertising.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-4–An ambitious attempt to introduce children to eight jazz greats. Some of the names may be familiar as they have been the subject of juvenile biographies–Jonah Winter's Once Upon a Time in Chicago: The Story of Benny Goodman (Hyperion, 2000) and Chris Raschka's Charlie Parker Played Be Bop (Scholastic, 1992)–but others, such as Django Reinhardt and Jelly Roll Morton, most probably will not. The text is not likely to remedy that as the verse is strained and awkward: "The playing gets faster/as busy as a one-legged tap dancer!/No one is a match./this cat is more than up to scratch." Hand-lettered text changes size, color, and style as often as 12 times per page, and runs vertically and diagonally, making it almost indecipherable. The acrylic, ink, and digital collage illustrations seem frantic rather than exuberant. The brief biographies appended do little to illuminate their subjects. The fact that children are told to unfold the book jacket (a poster is revealed) will strike the final sour note for librarians.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
