The musical prodigy Farkle McBride tries a number of instruments before discovering that conducting the orchestra makes him happy.

Publishers Description
Vroom-pety BANG
Young Farkle McBride is a musical genius: He plays the violin, the flute, the trombone, and the drums with incredible skill. But he's never satisfied: Something is missing.
In his first book, actor and musician John Lithgow introduces a memorable character, a fickle yet lovable child prodigy who brings the sounds and rhythms of an orchestra to sprawling visual life. With a double gatefold showing the entire orchestra, this is the ultimate book for the music lover in all of us.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great for teaching.  Feb 22, 2008
If you are an elementary music teacher, read this book to your third and fourth graders and accompany it with a "show and tell" of musical instruments. Allow your students to touch the instruments (have a trombone, a flute, a violin, a drum, etc) and use this book to emphasize how to treat the instruments properly and not damage them. They'll be so excited for the "petting zoo" that they wont realize that they're learning something practical that will save you repair money later. You could also discuss vibrating and resonating and teach/reinforce what actions allow vibration and resonation in each individual instrument (buzzing for brass, bow movement for strings, air splitting and reed vibration for woodwinds, etc) which they'll love, especially if you let them try it themselves. It will also get them excited about instruments if you are trying to recruit for an orchestra or band program. It's also good for going over vocabulary and the students get really into it if you get really animated. :)
FUN FUN FUN  Oct 27, 2007
John Lithgow is a genius! I purchased this book along with his other children books and activity items, as well as his CDs. I love them all - great songs, educational for children to learn about instruments, love and lots and lots of fun to dance to!! I highly recommend his books and stuff.
Great Birthday Present  Jan 13, 2007
This was a birthday present to my very talented 28 year old son who isn't sure what he wants to be when he grows up but is really quite "remarkable." He said the book "hit the mark."
Fantastic book for anyone interested in instrumental music...or  Jan 4, 2007
just wishing to introduce musical instruments to children. The dialog has a cadence and rhyme that makes the book enjoyable to the reader and listener. The illustrations are fantastic; colorful and accurate. This book goes one step further than just entertainment: it educates the reader/listener to the musical instruments of the orchestra. A must have for any early childhood library!
Every word is a pleasure  May 30, 2006
I love this book almost as much as my 3 year old son does, and that is A LOT! He demands that I read it at least once every night, just before bed, and I have to say that it's not a request that I shirk. I love this book; it is sheer poetry. I can recite most of it by heart. And the illustrations are a delight. This book has helped nurture his early passion for music, and that makes it all worth it.
