Melvin Invents Music
Melvin is born into a fishing community in the north. The seasons - winter and preparing for winter - are full of work and struggle. Melvin is different though. He was born with rhythm and it must come out. So, Melvin invents music - instruments and tunes. But, not everyone appreciates his invention - they want him to be normal. So Melvin is sent to a special school where he finds others just like him. But instead of becoming "normal" Melvin and his friends create a band, more instruments, and more music. But what happens when the fame goes to his head???
Funny story, cute way of looking at how music may have come about and the pitfalls of fame. An enjoyable read...
