Music for Junaid
Junaid 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 loving family, and their son Junaid’s thirst for music. Against a hazy skyline of high–rises, amidst monsoon skies symbolic of the young boy’s longing, the buoyant pictures zoom in on colourful old buildings, trellised balconies, sloping roofs and cobbled alleys to bring us the ambience of a typical city suburb.
