Summary
  • Song of Middle C: Practice makes perfect. And for a little girl facing her first recital of "Dance of the Wood Elves, " so do artistry, imagination (those wood elves sure love to dance!), and lucky underwear for good measure. Is she nervous as she waits and waits for her turn on stage? Hoo boy, no! She's as cool as a cucumber! Every child who has felt the pressure of the spotlight will smile at this comical tale of bravado that turns a onenote performance into an improvisation worthy of a standing ovation. Splendissimo!
  • Pecorino's first concert: If you think you know the silliest boy in the world, you're wrong. Pecorino Sasquatch is the silliest boy in the world. Just watch him as he heads off to the first concert he's ever seen, conducted by the world-famous Vittorio Pimplelini. Before the day is out, Pecorino will furmuzzle a man with a long mustache, wamboodle himself down into a tuba, and cause the most Brobdingnagian blast of a note that anyone has ever heard. It's all in a day's work for Pecorino
  • Best Mariachi in the world: Everyone in Gustavo's family is in a mariachi band...Everyone except Gustavo, that is. They all play violins, trumpets and guitars. They all make wonderful music in restaurants and at wedding parties. Gustavo would love to join the band, but he can't play any of the instruments. What's a wannabe mariachi to do? Follow Gustavo as he finds his place in the family mariachi band
  • Stella the star: Stella's parents are so proud. Her teacher wants her to be the star in the school play. So her parents take her shopping for new shoes and a new dress, get her hair cut at a fancy salon, and buy the best camera there is to take pictures during the show. After all, only the best will do for their star. After much anticipation, the adorable Stella wins the hearts of all audiences and makes her parents very proud in this charming story with a surprising finale
  • Porcupining, a prickly love story: What could be more poignant than a porcupine pining for a companion? With pun-filled prose and pleasing pictures, this passionate tale of love and friendship between two prickly creatures in a petting zoo makes a perfect read aloud (and a sublime Valentine)
  • When Louis Armstrong taught me scat: In a CRACKITY-SNAPPITY-POPPITY-POP bubblegum dream, a young girl learns to scat from the master himself, Louis Armstrong! Written in prose and scat, this joyful tribute is downright contagious. CHEW-ITEE CHEW-ITEE CHEW-ITEE CHOP, CRACKITY SNAPPITY POPPITY POP!
