Jean's world is turned upside down when he meets the Django. His new friend is so much fun and things are always exciting when the Django is around. But there's only one problem-ever since they met, Jean has found himself in heaps of trouble. What should Jean do? He doesn't want to send his special pal away, but he can't keep getting in trouble either. Finally Jean makes up his mind and does what he must: He sends the Django on his way. Soon Jean misses all the joy and crazy antics. Will he ever feel close to the Django again? Yes, for Jean finds the Django is near him every time he plays the banjo! Inspired by Levi Pinfold's love of jazz music and by jazz musician Jean "Django" Reinhardt, The Django is a story sure to delight and inspire young readers. A lively reading from narrator Steven Boyer adds just the right spark to this marvelous tale.

"Audio is the perfect medium for this children's story about a boy who loves music. The main character, inspired by early-twentieth-century jazz musician Jean "Django" Reinhardt, is reminiscent of any child who sometimes lets his or her imagination run wild. Little Jean keeps getting blamed for the mischief being caused by a "django," a creature only he can see. The audiobook allows the listener to hear the music, particularly the sounds of the banjo, that plays a central role in the story. While narrator Steven Boyer falls a bit flat when voicing the django, his slow, even tone makes the story an easy listen for children of all ages. R.Z.R. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
