Kyra Teis is a children’s book author-illustrator, a graphic novelist, and an avid sewer of costumes. When she’s not making art, you can find her cheering wildly with her husband at their two daughters’ soccer games and musical theatre productions.
"A delightful, deliriously happy introduction to an unusual and
too-little-known musical form." -- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED--

"Intro-duc-ing chil-dren to joy-ful parts of the Jew-ish past is always enrich-ing. When the past con-tin-ues into the present, this exchange is even bet-ter. From accor-dion to bass, from uptown to down-town, the sounds and sto-ries of klezmer come alive in this book." -- Emily Schneider, Jewish Book Council-- (10/19/2021 12:00:00 AM)
"Teis's metaphors may not be clarifying for readers unfamiliar with klezmer, but anyone who's felt the power of a group jam will appreciate this rhythmic, community-centered tale." -- Publishers Weekly-- (7/2/2021 12:00:00 AM)
