Popular picture books now appearing in the sturdy format and board book originals gather together in a variety of favorite subjects. Chris Raschka's Charlie Parker Played Be Bop makes the transition to board gracefully, with its one line of text per spread and its bold graphics of the stunning saxophonist. PW wrote of the original picture book published in 1992, ""Regardless of whether they've heard of jazz or Charlie Parker, young readers will bop to the pulsating beat of this sassy picture book.""
