Petit Rockeur - Christos Ortiz et Alan Mets - 21 x 21 cm - 48 pages - Picture book - Fall 2022 - EUR 20
In the Doremi family, when Mum says, "let’s play some music”, Sidonie jumps behind the piano and Fado begins to sing. But Do, the youngest, has no interest in joining in.
“Your turn, Do!”
“My name’s not Do, it’s No! Which means NO! No, I don’t like classical music! I want to play the electric guitar!”
His family doesn’t understand, so Do, ahem No, sets off to find “real musicians”.
A story by Alan Mets that explores strong themes: differences, appearances, tolerance and a search for harmony.
