Can Tasso and his bouzouki be replaced by a Rock-a-Rola machine at the village café? What place do people have in a world where innovation can make them feel worthless? This heartwarming tale has never been more relevant. Papa's illustrations evoke the simple life of the islanders which though hard, reminds us of the value of a common life lived out together.
