My Dad Is a DJ, Hardback Book

My Dad Is a DJ Hardback

Illustrated by Keith Henry Brown


  • Information


Travis's dad is a DJ, spinning silky jazz tunes at parties all over the neighbourhood.

The two of them have always enjoyed debating the great question: Which Black music tradition is the best - Travis's boppin' hip-hop or Dad's beloved jazz?But Travis's parents have divorced, and Dad lives on his own now.

He's only a few miles away, but for Travis, the distance between jazz and hip-hop feels greater than ever.

Music doesn't sound the same. Mum says they just need to find a new groove. But how? Maybe through a little hip-hoppin', not-stoppin', tunes-boppin' DJing. Based in part on Brown's experience as a single father, this picture book deftly depicts modern divorce in a Black family, and is a heartwarming ode to how music can bring a father and son closer together.
