Maura Pierlot (text), Sophie Norsa (illus.), The Trouble in Tune Town, Little Steps Publishing, August 2017, 32pp., $24.95 (hbk), ISBN: 9781925545333
A story with musical flair, this book shares Meg’s journey as she prepares for Tune Towns big concert.
The musical words throughout the story are bold and coloured, highlighting their significance in relation to the story’s theme. Many different instruments are introduced as part of the rhyming text.
With a message of persistence and practice rather than quitting, this catchy story grooves to its own beat while educating the reader about musical concepts.
