In his desert world
there are lines in the sand
that keep you in your place.
Boy OR girl.
Man OR woman.
The boy knows this
"One note trills. . .floating in the air.
A little girl listens, perched on a chair.
She rings a chime, soft and true.
One note trills and now there are two."
In an ode to the power of music and community, this vibrantly illustrated picture book steps out on the balcony for a shared moment of spontaneous joy and celebration.
