Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

This is a fun way to introduce children to the instruments that make up an orchestra. Includes some wonderful vocabulary.

Tongue-in-cheek read that involves a murder mystery at the orchestra. Lots of in jokes for parents to enjoy while reading aloud. I only wish the ending tied things up a bit more neatly. Those clarinets DO seem terribly suspicious...
