Cushion Concert, Monticello Public Library, June 17, 2011

Mole learns to play the violin and dreams of someday playing for an audience and changing the world. Unbeknownst to him, his music is floating up above his tunnels and forest creatures, plants, and even opposing armies are listening to his music. A lovely introduction to the power of music.

The library used this book as an introduction to a "cushion concert" where a violinist from the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra came to demonstrate her instrument and show how music has evolved from the Baroque era to today. It was a good book to get kids thinking about music and how music can make people feel.
