Of music and animals

Today I’ve got something short for you. A review of a fantastic children-book from two authors with plenty of imagination. It’s the second book in the series, I haven’t read the first one, but I bet it’s just as well thought and illustrated.

MusivilleMusiville: Let’s face the music and… conduct (Niditales Book 2) by Nicholas C. Rossis, Dimitris Fousekis

My rating:Β star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-icon

Book found through a reblogged article, author’s page: Nicholas Rossis.

Goodreads blurb:

A group of animals has evolved into musical instruments. Or is it the other way around? Whichever the case, they have now formed their own little village: Musiville. And bands. Lots and lots of bands. When everyone starts playing their own tune, buildings get torn down by an invader. Can Musiville be saved by the unexpected threat?

Here’s a great book for all the kids out there. With fantastic illustrations and story that hits the important issues, it’s something your kid should read. This story shows what great achievements can come from cooperation instead of competition.

This story shows what great achievements can come from cooperation instead of competition. With all of the animal-instrument hybrids, the story tells you that being different is completely OK, that you can embrace it and even use it.

The imagination of both authors is fantastic. There are even descriptions and drawings of Musiville citizens at the end of the book.

  1. An associate of mine has just written a ‘fairytale’ but was struggling to pitch it to the correct age group. What is the age group for your recommendation?

    1. Oh dear, I have no idea, but I’d say parents can read it even to small kids and the kids can enjoy the images. Older children would probably understand better the idea of cooperation.
