This very jazzy picture book will have your toes tapping along in no time. It’s the story of a young boy who sees the noise, music and rhythm in everything around him. From the squeak of the back door to the rumble of trucks on the highway, it all makes the music that surrounds him. Throughout the book, real musical instruments are also woven into the loose storyline. There are bass drums, his sister’s saxophone, violins, a trombone, tubas, and even a full band or two. Coming from Marsalis, readers will not be surprised that the final instrument in the book is a trumpet, right before all of the noises and music come together at the end.
