Vroom-pety BANG!

Young Farkle McBride is a musical genius: He plays the violin, the flute, the trombone, and the drums with incredible skill. But he's never satisfied: Something is missing.

In his first book, actor and musician John Lithgow introduces a memorable character, a fickle yet lovable child prodigy who brings the sounds and rhythms of an orchestra to sprawling visual life. With a double gatefold showing the entire orchestra, this is the ultimate book for the music lover in all of us.

Doom-pety CLANG!

Now in paperback--the "New York Times" bestseller about a remarkable young musical prodigy who introduces young readers to the workings of the orchestra and the pleasures of music. Full color.

Synopsis:

The remarkable Farkle McBride is a musical prodigy. Yet no matter how hard he strives he just isn't satisfied with the sound of any of the instruments playing alone--until he comes to the aid of the orchestra's conductor and discovers his true calling. John Lithgow introduces the workings of the orchestra and the pleasures of music in a jaunty, rhythmic text that begs to be read aloud.
