In an effort to gain approval, Django (a golden retriever) decides to learn how to play jazz. However, Django's efforts backfire when he learns that his paws weren't made for strumming a guitar and his natural preference is to chew drumsticks instead of beating drums. Just when Django feels that all hope is lost he discovers his true talent and finally gains approval through being himself and doing what comes naturally for him. This book is packaged with a jazz single called "So Misunderstood" which consists of three jazz songs written or arranged specifically for this project.
The companion CD includes the following tracks: 1. So Misunderstood (with vocals) 2. Afternoons (instrumental) 3. Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone (instrumental)

This is a wonderful book with a heart-warming ending. The dog wants to please his owner, so he tries to learn to play music. Since we all struggle to do things that we think will help us to get ahead or make those around us happy, I think this is an important lesson for all of us. The dog learned to make others happy by discovering his natural talent. The CD is extremely cute and my kids love the first song. This is a wonderful book that would make a great gift for any child or dog lover.
