4.0 out of 5 stars Appealing and natural tale, 29 Sep 2005
This review is from: Where in the World (Paperback)
The boy Ari is shown as having a very natural talent for music, which is part of his life in different ways in his native Germany and in his new home in Australia - no tales of precocious prodigies here. What we see is a boy fitting his past and his present, his "there" and his "here", his two languages, his two cultures, and his different interests into a whole life of his own. These themes will have a familiar feel for many readers, but they are only reasons to start reading. Simon French has kept away from postured PC poses in this warm but understated picture of a child's growing internal and external worlds, and the Ari he shows us makes for satisfying reading.
