2013 Award
Skit-Scat Raggedy Cat, Ella Fitzgerald
( by Roxane Orgill/ illus. Sean Qualls, Candlewick $14.99 Score: )

This girlhood story about Ella Fitzgerald was originally published as a stand alone title. It has now been reissued in a hard or paper cover version in new series of biographies. These are not easy to read, the text is printed in a small font, but it may be just right for young chapter book readers who are interested in non-fiction or jazz. One has to hope that Ella is as timeless the publication of this book would suggest. It's a lively story of an original and talented orphan who didn't give up even during the tough days of the great depression.
