"Okay, young cats, let the beat hit your feet."
One fine evening, Miz Mozetta puts on her firecracker-red dress and heads outside to enjoy the moonlight. When she hears the neighborhood kids’ music, she’s inspired to dance, but her old friends have too many aches and pains to join her. The kids doubt that Miz Mozetta would be able to keep up with them. So she retreats to her parlor, where she dreams about the old days at the Blue Pearl Ballroom. Just when her feet are itching to get out there and do the jitterbug — friends or no friends — a knock comes on the door, and Miz Mozetta gets some welcome company.
Lively, colorful illustrations and a rhythmic text make for a jazzy dance party that readers will delight in attending again and again. Jazzy Miz Mozetta is the winner of the 2005 Coretta Scott King - John Steptoe New Talent Award.
