Red is a dashing, smashing downtown tomcat. Ginger is a jazzy, snazzy uptown kitty. But after they meet at the Alley Cat's Meow--the hottest boogie-woogie juke joint around--the sparks fly as they dazzle the world with their romantic toe-tappin', quick-steppin' dancing.
With all the spirit and charm of the classic Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musicals, Kathi Appelt's vivacious text and Jon Goodell's spectacular paintings will have young readers waltzing and jitterbugging right out of their seats.

In each setting, not only are they posed with joyful expressions and irresistible exuberance in mid-fling, but their clothes are magnficent: elegant tuxes or deceptively casual dress for him, splendid ruffles, liquescent silks, and luxurious furs for her.
