This book is the follow-up to The Musical Life of Gustave Mole. It is a wonderful story and if you enjoyed Gustav in the first book, you will certainly enjoy this little adventure. A really lovely story......

More Difficult Than It Appears 28 Jun. 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Gustav Mole's world has been infested with noise and now his children refuse to play music. In order to inspire them to play Gustav takes his family on a trip around the world, visiting many different cultures and listening to their music. In this way the reader is carried on a journey that introduces them to many different forms of music and types of musical instruments. While this is an amusing story and a great overview of some not-very-well-known musical instruments, this is definitely not a book for preschoolers. With vocabulary including words such as; foundry, urban sprawl, transmitter, lament, to name a few, this book would be inappropriate for the youngest children. I would recommend it for older children, but be prepared to do a lot of explaining about instruments carrying names like Saron Panerus and animals like macaques.

Wonderful introduction to music of the world 24 Nov. 2002
By Melissa Mace - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is a wonderful way to introduce children to the music of the world. Gustav Mole's decree at the end of the book should be a goal for all of us in this modern world. Children will surely want to pick up an instrument themselves, sing and make merry music after reading The Lost Music: Gustav Mole's war on noise.
Good attempt, but story it lacking... 20 Mar. 2013
By Happy Mama - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Like what an earlier reviewer said, the vocabulary is way too hard for preschoolers, and even if the language were simpler, the storyline is a bit hard to follow and not very logical.

The pictures are wonderful though, and we basically used the pictures and told our own story to go with it. Highly recommend checking it out from the library first before purchasing it, since you might not think you need to buy it after you read it. The author tries to crack a few jokes (only adults will get it, I think) that fly over the children's head. An Indonesian instrument is compared to a god, there's another religious reference about African instruments too. Just OK.
