Ella Queen of Jazz (Hardcover)

New Picture Book About Women Helping Women

Ella Fitzgerald sang the blues and she sang them good. Ella and her fellas were on the way up! It seemed like nothing could stop her, until the biggest club in town refused to let her play… and all because of her color. But when all hope seemed lost, little did Ella imagine that a Hollywood star would step in to help.

Ella Queen of Jazz is a captivating tale of music, friendship and courage. – Daily Express

The inspiring, true story of how a remarkable friendship between Ella Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe was born – and how they worked together to overcome prejudice and adversity. This is a little known story (at least to me) about how Marilyn Monroe helped get Ella Fitzgerald a booking at an all white night club — and their extraordinary life-long friendship.

‘This is wonderful … steeped in the glitz and glamour of 1950s Hollywood, the power of female friendship overcomes prejudice.’ – Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
