Laugh out loud funny! And I'm not really a laugh out loud kind of reader. Pecorino's mom takes him to his first orchestra concert. "Pecorino was so excited he rabbit-hopped around his room. Then he froze statue still. 'What's a concert?' he asked." The book continues on with these kinds of delightful moments that kids and adults will both enjoy, though for different reasons.

This is a strange, but humorous tale about a little boy's first trip to a symphony. The narrative includes some wonderfully imaginative words, like furmuzzled, wossle, and wamboodle. And the boy has such a wild name - Pecorino Sasquatch.

The mixed media illustrations are terrific and complement the story nicely. We enjoyed reading this book together.

I don't know what it is about these books that just KILL me!! I think I have a very vivid imagination and I can imagine the voices of the characters...I don't know-but they are funny stories!

Young Pecorino Sasquatch attends a concert with his mother. While exploring the instruments he puts himself into a difficult position. A wonderful introduction for students to the orchestra.

The story was OK, but I really do not like this style of illustration.

“Dearest dumpling, one day your imagination is going to get you into trouble," whispered his mother.

He would never do that," Pecorino replied. "We're best friends.”
