Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the bestseller The Girl Who Hated Books, comes another wonderfully wacky story. Priya begs for a piano and lessons. Her parents try to placate her with a cardboard keyboard, and her diligence at "practicing" finally convinces them to give in and buy a real one. But now Priya is disappointed — she can't make the wonderful sounds she heard in her head as she practiced on the cardboard keyboard! A resourceful girl, she comes up with an ingenious solution that creates havoc at the Fall Recital! A wildly exuberant and entertaining story about imagination and perseverance. Based on her own experience while growing up, Manjusha Pawagi creates a spirited story about a young girl's love of music, her imagination, and her determination. This wildly exuberant and entertaining story by the best-selling author of The Girl Who Hated Books will delight teachers, parents, children and music lovers everywhere!

Review:

"...This story is well crafted. The lilting rhymes and repetition of text are attractive for the listener. However this book will require child/adult interaction to obtain the maximum potential for the young listener as the theme of perseverance, and diligence may be lost to them. The illustrations more than make up for any lack of comprehension as they will entertain the younger listener. Liz Milkau successfully uses wonderful soft colour washes and mayhem to convey the energetic Priya and the joy she gets from her pianomania. Recommended." Jocelyne Figueiredo, CM Magazine
