The idea for this book was a stroke of genius, and it is executed flawlessly. It's about the orchestra, or is it? They don't play a note until the last page. Your kids will learn the different instruments (and the different underwear...) The story and the illustrations are engaging, relevant, funny, poetic. When we read it aloud at my house, the room goes quiet. Everyone smiles. Thank you Karla Kuskin!
