Hailing from the Tremé neighborhood in New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews got his nickname by wielding a trombone twice as long as he was high. A prodigy, he was leading his own band by age six, and today this Grammy-nominated artist headlines the legendary New Orleans Jazz Fest. Here, follow Andrews as he fulfills his dream of becoming a musician, despite the odds, and becomes an international star. Based on the 2016 Caldecott Honor Book and winner of the Coretta Scott King (Illustration) Medal, Trombone Shorty is a celebration of the rich cultural history of New Orleans and the power of music.

"If a fairy tale were set in New Orleans, this is how it would read." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This well-told and exquisitely illustrated story of a musician with a steep career trajectory will inspire young readers to pursue their passions, despite the challenges." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"...narrated by Arnell Powell's rich voice...a joyous homage to cultural roots..." - School Library Journal
4 STARS "Trombone Shortly is mainly a story of how a dream can pay off with hard work, presented with a heady mixture of realistic collage and paint, backed by a toe-tapping soundtrack that includes the tune 'Orleans & Claiborne' by Andrews and his group Orleans Avenue. Highly recommended. Editor's Choice." - Video Librarian (starred review)
