STARRED REVIEW This sweet, fun read-aloud drums up nostalgia for all the rhythms, noises, and dreams of the city. --School Library Journal starred review
Based on the story of an internationally renowned violin prodigy of color.
One bright city morning, Penelope and her mom make their way to the farmer's market. On street corners and train platforms, musicians and performers enchant Penelope, speaking to her through their floating, booming notes. The noise of the city keeps the pair moving--until Penelope hears a sound so magical she knows she has to play the instrument that makes it.
