MUSIC FOR JOSHUA
Joshua loves music. But learning to play an instrument isn’t likely, he knows. One day he hears the notes of a guitar… and ends up following a music teacher from house to house, watching and listening. If only he could learn too!
From the award-winning author of Gone Grandmother comes another endearing story that takes us into the heart of a family from the small East Indian community of Mumbai. Against a hazy skyline of high-rises, amidst monsoon skies, the buoyant pictures zoom in on colourful old buildings, trellised balconies, sloping roofs and cobbled alleys to bring us the ambience of a typical ‘gaothan’.
