Author-illustrator C. G. Esperanza celebrates the rich culture of the Boogie Down Bronx through an infectious read-aloud beat and colorful illustrations that leap right off the book. With the turn of a page and two shakes of a can of paint spray, an epic block party awaits readers in this vibrant picture book.
Boogie boogie, y’all.
The city boogied all day.
Busy, busy, busy,
Till one kid stopped to say,
Woah, woah, woah!
Look at the art on the wall!
The city is alive with vibrant art in every corner of the parks, the shops, the trains. But most people are too busy to see it—or worse, choose to ignore it! When three children stop to marvel at the art around their community, they realize it’s up to them to show everyone else how truly special it is when art and reality dance together so seamlessly. This celebratory ode to graffiti and the Bronx community will leave readers cheering.
