It's a Groovy World, Alfredo!

By Sean Taylor

Illustrated by Chris Garbutt

From Sean Taylor, comes a goofy, warm-hearted story about finding your own individual rhythm and groove in the world.

From Sean Taylor, author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, comes a goofy, warm-hearted story about being yourself and finding your own individual rhythm and groove in the world. Alfredo is a frog with a problem – he can’t dance! How can he go to Rick’s party (with disco lights and groovy dancing) if he doesn’t have any fancy moves? So, his best friend Marty (a smooth talking fly) tries to teach him all the groovy ways to dance – the "Cool Boogie Style", the "Speedy Heebie-Jeebies" and the "Silky-Smooth Moving and Grooving". But no matter how hard Marty tries, all he ever does is … Jump! Jump! Jump! It's just not cool. Or ... is it?

Reviews

'Prolific author Sean Taylor has joined forces with animation artist, Garbutt and it’s an entirely appropriate collaboration for this exuberant and funky foray into disco dancing fly- and frog-style. Upbeat, outgoing Marty is the ideal foil to self-conscious, floppy-footed, Alfredo.' Red Reading Hub

'Vibrantly illustrated by Chris Garbutt.' The Independent on Sunday

'For every young mover and shaker who thought they would never be able to dance with all the cool cats out there, this funny, frantic, fabulous book will have them tapping to the beat!' Lancashire Evening Post

'This would be a fantastic picture book for storytime sessions. […] I love the bright and simplistic illustrations throughout the story.' The School Librarian
