I liked the book because it tells us about the life of Louis Armstrong and what he did growing up in New Orleans. I also liked it because he was from Louisiana and so am I. My favorite part is when they were in the haunted blacksmith shop and Louis plays the horn. When the ghost of Jean Lafitte and the other pirate ghost arrived at the shop, they were mean. This gave me the heebie jeebies, but I couldn‘t wait to read more. I liked the illustrations because they helped me create the characters in my mind. This book is part of the Magic Tree House series and is similar to Ghost Hunters.
I recommend this book for kids 8-10 years of age who like to learn about history. I think all kids from Louisiana should read this book.
