Synopsis:

It was a day when Max didn't feel like talking to anyone. He just sat on his front steps and watched the clouds gather in the sky.

A strong breeze shook the tree in front of his house, and Max saw two heavy twigs fall to the ground.

So begins this story of a young boy's introduction to the joys of making music.

Max picks up the sticks and begins tapping out the rhythms of everything he sees and hears around him...the sound of pigeons startled into flight, of rain against the windows, of distant church bells and the rumble of a subway. And then, when a marching band rounds Max's corner, something wonderful happens.

Brian Pinkney's rhythmic text and lively pictures are certain to get many a child's foot tapping, many a youngster drumming.

About the Author

Brian Pinkney is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and holds a master's degree in illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He is the illustrator of several highly-praised picture books including The Ballad of Belle Dorcas, Where Does the Trail Lead? and The Boy and the Ghost.

His books have received such honors as Parent's Choice Picture Book Awards, the American Bookseller's Pick of the Lists, the Golden Kite Honor Award, the Coretta Scott King Honor Award and an ALA Notable designation.

Brian Pinkney has played the drums since he was eight years old. He still keeps a set of drumsticks in his studio where, when resting from his illustration, he sometimes taps out rhythms on the back of his chair. With his wife, writer Andrea Davis Pinkney, he makes his home in Brooklyn, New York.

It was a day when Max didn't feel like talking to anyone. He just sat on his front steps and watched the clouds gather in the sky.

A strong breeze shook the tree in front of his house, and Max saw two heavy twigs fall to the ground.

So begins this story of a young boy's introduction to the joys of making music.

Max picks up the sticks and begins tapping out the rhythms of everything he sees and hears around him...the sound of pigeons startled into flight, of rain against the windows, of distant church bells and the rumble of a subway. And then, when a marching band rounds Max's corner, something wonderful happens.
