Jonathan London's rhymes and jazzy language tells the hip-hop story of a candy store man who arms are always open. The "cool" man who works at the candy store finds a lonely young boy and takes him under his wing to show him around town and teaches him what it means to be part of a community. The illustrations are very colorful, big and detailed. I loved the language London uses in this story and I know kids will love it too and get a laugh from it. This would be a fun read out loud book with a class and I know young kids will enjoy it. The whole book uses creative rhymes, for example: 'Oh, he's hip, he's hot, you'd like him a lot." Very fun and creative! ( )

With a bip-bop-shadip, the Jazzy proprietor of a corner candy store takes a lonely young boy under his wing and teaches him, by example, what it means to be part of a community. Jonathan London's finger-popping rhyme and Kevin O'Malley's jiving illustrations tell the hip-hop, heartwarming tale of an everyday hero whose heart -- and door -- are always open.
