Summary "A little Brazilian cricket named Zaz dreams of singing in New York. After hopping a ride on a woman's fruit hat that takes her from her homeland to Manhattan, she meets a savvy fly named Buster who brings her to the Swing Café on East 54th Street. Everyone there speaks a common language, called Swing, and Zaz is inspired to take to the stage, sing from the heart, and deliver the performance of a lifetime."-- Page [4] of cover.
