really liked it

This book was a Picture Book Club monthly read found here:

Ben's Trumpet was a fun and visually unusual read. Using black and white art deco style this book is set in the 1920's. Through the first few pages of the book, I wasn't sure how I felt about the art, but as the story went on I began to understand it. I am not sure how a child would feel about these illustrations and may even giggle or be distracted at one of the illustrations.

This story is about a young aspiring jazz musician who lives nearby a Jazz Club. He plays his trumpet daily even though he doesn't physically have one.
