I thought this book was very good. The illustrations were good and the characters were lively. It was a fun ride in finding his uncles hat so he could pose for a picture as he was a famous Jazz musician. ( )
  Lukemathison | Mar 8, 2016 |
As C.J searches for his Uncle's hat all around town, he discovers that everyone in town talks highly of his Uncle's musical skills. At the end of the story, C.J's uncle gives him a clarinet for his birthday and the uncle finds his hat in the box with the clarinet! He gives his hat to C.J which symbolizes his Uncle passing the torch of his musical skills to C.J. ( )
