Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In answer to a boy's query, an old banjo in the attic of a ramshackle farmhouse remembers when all the instruments there made glorious music; PW praised this ``uncommonly moving and heartening tale of hope re-born . . . enhanced by Stephen Gammell's haunting art.'' Ages 6-10. (Mar.)
