One day, Mr. Schutt, the blustery hotel manager, discovered the duck swimming in the lobby fountain!

Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin

Icon: 
Book icon
Copies: 1

With mournful moan and silken tone,
itself alone comes ONE TROMBONE...
Then a trumpet joins in to become a duet; add a French horn and voila! you have a trio -- and on it goes until an entire orchestra is assembled on stage. Lloyd Moss's iresistible rhymes and Marjorie Pricemans's energetic illustrations make beautiful music together -- a masterpiece that is the perfect introduction to musical instruments and musical groups, and a counting book that redefines the genre.
