Inspirational story + beautiful illustrations = book not to be missed! I highly recommend this beautifully illustrated book of ambition, resilience and courage, told in a delightful story. Grandparents can be special people in the lives of young children and Hana’s is certainly inspirational for her. He is an accomplished violinist and plays for her and her brothers whilst they stay at his home. The author uses fantastic descriptions to help the reader imagine the feelings of the characters of this story - for example, when “Hana walked onto the stage . . . an oceanic roar filled her ears.” Hana is a young girl who really wants to learn to play the violin after being inspired by her grandfather - or Ojiichan. She’s only had three lessons when she decides to enter a talent competition, despite derisory comments made by her brothers! She keeps practicing and, when the performance night arrives surprises everyone - you’ll have to read the story yourself to discover what she does! Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley too  for letting me read this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
