Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a dingy tenement building, the sounds of a harmonica intrigue two brothers and send them off in search of the musician. They find a blind man, and begin a friendship. PW's comment: ``Keats is no stranger to miracles, as two boys discover the miracle of music and the miracle of compassion in themselves.'' (All ages)
