'Kitamura's stylish illustrations draw readers into a mesmerising world where music is interpreted as kaleidoscopic shapes waft through the air.' Junior 20050701 Igor loved music but couldn't sing in tune. He couldn't even join in the dawn chorus - the other birds complained that he spoiled their lovely music. No amount of practising seemed to improve things and Igor was very crestfallen. But one day his song awakes a very old bird who loves his unique sound and they sing a glorious duet! The Teacher 20050601 'An endearing hero, ravishing colour, a lyrical-graphic equivalence for musical sounds in patterned shapes that float and soar: this is Satoshi Kitamura at the very top of his formidable game.' -- Jane Doonan TES 20050708 'Musical harmony is represented visually by colour and line which dance across the page.' -- Prue Goodwin Literacy News, UKLA 20050701 'This book is beautifully illustrated, in quirky cartoon fashion, with splashes of colour dancing around the pages to represent the music. This offering will show children that making music is a joyful experience, regardless of how it sounds.' -- Kristen M. Todd School Library Journal (NY) 20050818
