Trombone Shorty
By: Troy Andrews
Lexile Level: 840 L
Unpaged
How did Troy Andrews get the nickname of “Trombone Shorty?” He started playing the trombone and it was twice as big as him, and thus the name “Trombone Shorty.” In this short autobiography, readers learn how Trombone Shorty grew up in New Orleans, and became a great musician that now has his own band called “Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.” This is a great non-fiction piece that reads like a story book.
