“As the symphony floated above, Sora searched deep inside for a song. But nothing came. Melodies tickled across Sora’s toes, legs, and back as the little cricket searched in vain for a song. Then a stern voice pierced the night, and the music stopped. “Someone’s not singing.”

“Together with Sora, readers will observe how strength of will and belief in oneself can lead to beautiful outcomes.” The illustrations “enchantingly capture the essence of the outside world and the colors it contains.”
—Mary Lanni, Librarian Reviewer
