Dexter loves three things: his mama, the smell of pork chops frying, and the sound of Old Johnny Cotton's clarinet playing the blues. Dexter wants more than anything to make music just like Johnny Cotton, but his mama can't afford to buy him an instrument. Johnny Cotton gives Dexter the silver harmonica that his own daddy used to play. How Dexter learns to play that harmonica and blow the music from deep inside is a story of a dream fulfilled. Linda England's rhythmic prose and Teresa Flavin's energetic illustrations create a story that will have readers humming and dancing along with Dexter.
