Book Description

An exhilarating new story about an inspirational teacher and the influence of music on the imagination, written by Colin MacNaughton and illustrated by the prize-winning artist, Satoshi Kitamura, for whom it was written.


"Mr Gee's bonkers", the children whisper. He plays rousing music which thunders round the classroom and asks what it makes them think of. "Stampeding horses!", "Racing Cars!", "Elephants!". "Write a story about it!", says Mr Gee. And the ordinary boy began to write and the words tumbled out of him.
