Publisher Summary
Seven-year-old Louis Armstrong had to work to help his mother pay the rent, but one day when the junk wagon he worked on passed a pawn shop with a gleaming brass trumpet in the window, young Louis couldn't resist.

How did famous New Orleans jazz trumpet player Louis Armstrong get his first horn?


Seven-year-old Louis Armstrong was too poor to buy a real instrument. He didn’t even go to school. To help his mother pay the rent, every day he rode a junk wagon through the streets of New Orleans, playing a tin horn and collecting stuff people didn’t want. Then one day, the junk wagon passed a pawn shop with a gleaming brass trumpet in the window. . . .
