Lady Bugatti by Joyce Maxner. il Kevin Hawkes.
Lothrop, Lee & Shepard Books/William Morrow & Company: NY, 1991.

Lady Bugatti holds a jazzy dinner party for elite friends and invites them for a show afterward. They arrive in style, sit in a private box, only to find Lady Bugatti is missing. They watch the show and see she is the closing act.

The story is odd and jazzy, with rhythmic rhymes. The colors and textures are luxurious. The story is wonderfully illustrated. Worth a look for the pictures alone. It is one of Hawkes' first books.
