Double Bass Blues by Andrea J. Loney - ADVISABLE

Double Bass Blues by Andrea J. Loney illustrated by Rudy Gutierrez, PICTURE BOOK Borzoi Book (Alfred A. Knopf), 2019. $18. 9781524718527 



Nic plays with his orchestra at school. In fact, he has a solo - all his friends are proud and he does a great job! But, his trip home is anything but easy - when you carry a big double bass on public transportation, things get a bit crowded - but it's all worth it for the great surprise when he gets home! 

I always love picture books about kids musical experiences and this one is terrific! It's almost like Nic's music inspires the generations - his friends and his grandpa's. Full of vibrant musical illustrations with lots of textual onomatopoeia - I could almost hear him play.
