This funny and entertaining picture book is about finding your passion, and young Marcolino is pretty sure learning piano is not his passion.
‘When I was your age, I played for hours,’ Mum insists, but Grandfather remembers things rather differently. He helps Marcolino find the musical instrument that’s right for him – and it’s a real surprise!
‘Cali is nothing if not diverse in his choice of subjects to explore. He treats them with keen perception and creativity. Allied with gifted illustrators, his books are always memorable. Highly recommended.’ Magpies
