Hello There! I am Sydney! I liked your poems. You inspired me to write a poem. I have a question though, what is a Jitterbug? - Sydney D.

Hi Sydney! A Jitterbug is a made-up creature that not only loves to dance, it has wings to help it do all kinds of amazing flips and tricks!  I did not invent "the Jitterbug" - it's an energetic dance that was popular in the 1930's and '40's.  Here is a video of dancers from Dancing With The Stars doing the Jitterbug. 

 

It's no accident that dancing is an important part of J is for JITTERBUG!  Tony Perrin, the illustrator, is a professional dancer as well as an artist and jewelry designer.  Look closely at the Jitterbugs on our cover, and you'll see one wears a cursive "J" for Jen, the other a "T" for Tony.
