A cacophony of musical instruments, dynamic illustrations, and John Beach's animated narration create a joyful celebration in this audio-visual treat for the senses. In a city neighborhood in which music is the only form of communication, Drum, who doesn't have a song or a melody, feels like he can never fit in. But once invited to play with the other instruments, Drum realizes that his special gift is providing them with the rhythm that drives their music. Beach lifts the rhymes off the pages with exuberance. He delivers Drum's story with passion and imaginative flair, enhancing the book's vibrant pictures, text, and accompanying sound effects and music. The author's note elaborates on Drum's allegory, encouraging listeners to embrace who they are and their potential. S.A.A. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2022]
