Ella Fitzgerald: The Tale of a Vocal Virtuosa


Ella Fitzgerald – the queen of scat — began her life as a singer on the stage of the Apollo Theater when she was just seventeen years old. Her rich voice and vocal innovations brought her fame and a remarkable career than spanned half a century and won her generations of fans around the world. Brian Pinkney’s illustrations are dramatic and jazzy, a perfect combination.
