Review:
Savion is an acknowledged genius of tap-dancing who has won over the younger generation by dancing to contemporary music. His influence has overcome the whiff of black-faced vaudeville that caused tap-dancing to seem dated. The format of the book, with words seemingly tapping across the pages, brings a noisy, quick-moving artist successfully to life in a quiet, static art form - the book.
