    " Inspiring story of a remarkable musician who overcame odds that might overwhelm a lesser person, Django Reinhardt. Born to an itinerant gypsy family, he learned at a young age to play musical instruments. When his violinist father abandons him, he experiments with jazz and soon is a sought-after performer. A fire in his caravan causes devastating injury to his hands, but dedicated practice and ingenuity enable him to compensate for his loss, and eventually he is able to perform better than ever. The rhythmic text, evocative of Langston Hughes, echoes the jazz sounds Django creates. The strongly colored oil paintings evoke the smoky gypsy encampment and the lively Parisian jazz clubs. Lexile level 700. Interest level higher. "
