Description


Written by music industry veteran David Weiser for his five-year-old son, The Boy Who Wanted to Rock takes readers on a musical journey that encourages children to learn the ropes...and swing from the ceiling! Guided by a cast of helpful and unlikely creatures, a young boy discovers that his inner monster is the key to learning and enjoying music. Beautifully illustrated by longtime friend and fellow musician Derek Lavoie, the story is a tribute to the inner child that sustains every rock 'n roller.

Intended for children ages 3 - 8 years, the book introduces fundamental concepts like rhythm and pitch, and provides a basic overview of how keyboard and fretted instruments work. An easy-to-digest tale told in rhyme, it begins with a frustrated child in a bedroom full of instruments, and ends with proper rock n' roll mayhem in a cave full of monsters!
