This is a bizarre, yet fun, children's book about Jazz Fly and his friends, who go on Captain Cockroach's jazzy cruise ship and have a fun adventure while playing their musical instruments. My daughter and I liked this book, especially the beautiful, bright graphics and the fact that we got to learn a lot of French and Spanish words.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I received an electronic copy from Tortuga Press through NetGalley.
The band returns in their third book. This time they're on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. While they're playing and the passengers are dancing, a storm blows in and damages the boat. Everyone escapes and the band has quite the adventure traveling in the sea until being reunited and heading off on their next adventure.

HOW FUN!!! What a fun little book that combines 3 languages!! You get a little english, a little french, and a little spanish all while exploring the open seas on a fancy cruise ship at the hands of Captain Cockaroch! This is a perfect book for kiddos between grandes prek-2nd grade for sure. You'll get lots of giggles while mesmerized by the beautiful pictures. Such great option for a read-along!

Thank you to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for granting me access to Jazz Fly 3 in exchange for an honest review.

Jazz Fly 3 tells the story of the Jazz Fly and his friends, starting aboard Captain Cockroach's jazzy cruise ship, but when the ship sinks who will help the jazz band find their lost friend Nancy? French and Spanish words are presented throughout, mostly as dialogue among the characters in the illustrations rather than as part of the primary story text. A translation key f

Bugs Bugs Bugs! This book is full of insects and fun words. The illustrations are vibrant as are the words. The page design leaves a little to be desired, but overall it's a fun little book.

Thank you to NetGalley and Tortuga Press, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), Members' Titles for the free digital copy for my review.
