Book Review #394
Duke Ellington by Andrea Davis Pinkney, illustrated by Brian Pinkney
Rating: two stars (out of four)

The illustrations for this book were very unique, I liked the swirls of color that blended into the story and added depth to the pages.  The strong outlines of the drawings in bold black ink were very cool.  The story was pretty interesting, I liked the lingo they used, it gave it a more southern feel and made it feel more like Duke Ellington's era.  I would recommend this book, especially to jazz enthusiasts.
