This is a cute book, sent to me for review. Definitely a book by a man, for boys, however! Three boys on a bike, seriously! It is rewarding making music with and for kids. They are an honest audience!
I like books that combine music and stories, and this has that plus the author is also the illustrator! Good for him for earning a living writing, drawing, performing and singing! As the PR says, it is a 'whimsical adventure' that makes me think of times long gone: going to the Country Store! The artwork is amazing. We have a few country stores remaining in Ontario: Rosseau and Clayton come to mind!
Do you have a country store near you?
