Reviews

"An endearing tale of ambition fulfilled."
--Booklist

"Tusa's illustrations are cheery and absolutely full of life: Readers can almost hear the music Elva does."
--Kirkus "Quiet humor...provides a tender accompaniment to this meditation on fulfilling one's dreams."
--Publishers Weekly "This charming book artfully and evocatively explores the joy that comes from following your dreams."
--School Library Journal "The lessons of persistence and the importance of pursuing one's dreams are communicated in a pleasantly realistic and non-preachy way (Elva needs lessons and practice to play, for instance), and many kids will find the ending satisfying. The text's gentle momentum and understated lyricism make it a fine choice for a readaloud selection."
--Bulletin
