Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
As a young student of the violin, Joshua Bell learns about an international competition to be held in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He chooses a piece of music, which his teacher suggests may be too difficult, but Joshua is determined: it's a piece of music he loves. At the competition, Joshua experiences the usual jitters. Once his name is called, he strides to the stage and begins to play, but almost immediately, he makes a mistake. As he is about to walk off the stage, he asks if he can try again. This time, the playing is impeccable. Dušan Petričić brilliant illustrations, full of movement and color, capture the sounds made by Joshua's violin, from the missed notes to the swirling, uplifting strains of the perfectly executed piece. Children will readily empathize with Joshua's misstep, but they will also learn that with perseverance, second chances are possible.-- Provided by publisher.
