Summary
From New York Times bestselling author Chris Barton and new illustrator Louis Thomas comes a fun, rhythmic picture book about finding the music that is perfect for you!

A boy who loves to make noise gets to pick only one instrument (at his parents urging) in a music store, but there is too much to choose from! There's triangles and sousaphones! There's guitars and harpsichords! Bagpipes and cellos and trombones! How can he find the one that is just right for him out of all those options?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There's such a thing as having too many choices, a dilemma faced by the narrator of this inviting picture book. In the first scene, a boy in glasses stares through a shop window at multiple violins, saxophones, guitars, banjos, drums, and other instruments. He enters the shop with his parent to choose one of the 88 pounding, surrounding, astounding, mound-of-sounding instruments. Knowing that he can take one home, he strikes, strums, blows, and plucks a variety of choices before he finds the one: a piano. Suddenly intimidated by the thought of 88 individual keys, he walks away. But he returns, pushes up his sleeves, and makes a good decision. Barton (The Day-Glo Brothers, 2009) writes with a flair for the sounds of words. The colorful language finds its match in Thomas' playful, free-spirited ink drawings with watercolor washes. With tiny feet and enormous heads, the stylized characters have expressive faces that are easy to read. An enjoyable encounter with musical instruments.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "It's time to take up an instrument, and Barton's young narrator, confronted with 88 options at the music shop, is overwhelmed. "How am I supposed to pick just one?" he asks, as his beaming parents look on. Each instrument, the boy discovers, has a distinctive, superlative quality: the accordion is "the squeeziest," a triangle is "the easiest," a trombone is "the slideyest." Working in ink and watercolor, newcomer Thomas draws a young man so serious and eager that at one point he's tackling four instruments simultaneously-it's clear that no one will need to force him to practice. Ultimately, it's the piano that strikes a chord, even with its 88 keys to master: "I'll just learn it one note at a time," he says. It's a little disappointing that Barton (Mighty Truck) dodges why exactly the piano becomes the perfect choice for his hero, but the book is spot-on in a bigger sense: when music education works, it's because instrument and student feel made for each other.
