A song keeps appearing to Khalida but no one gives her time to play it. Finally she catches it and a crowd, setting aside all their worries, gathers to hear her song.

A beautiful depiction of creativity, single-mindedness, and lovely music.

I received an advance copy of this book. It is coming out in September and is one of four debut picture books coming out from Page Street Publishing. I was very impressed by the quality of the writing, story and illustrations. The whole book yells, "Buy me."

Khalida awakened one night by a song in her heart, tried to find the time to compose it, but her busy scheduled kept her from doing so. Try as she might she could never find the time. One day she took the time and put things aside and wrote the most beautiful song ever heard. It made others stop and listen, and for a moment forget about all of their worries.

Sample quote: "Khalida was between barely awake and fast asleep when the song swirled into her bedroom."
