The Secret Mountain
JUVENILE FICTION / Performing Arts / Music
Maestro Evarista is a conductor in search of an orchestra. With a heavy cart full of instruments, the little lizard sets out to find musicians. One by one, she comes across an assortment of animals who lighten her load as they pick their parts in what becomes a ten-member menagerie. Her cart finally empty and her heart full, Maestro Evarista takes the lead in a concert that proves big dreams do come true with a little hard work to see them through. In a twist on the classic accordion format, this tale unfolds page by page and animal by animal until the full orchestra is presented across a panoramic, ten-panel spread. Introduced in rhyming verse, a vibrant cast of characters appears against a bold black backdrop to set the stage for readers of all ages. Includes a QR code for the narrated story with music.

- An innovative format (accordion book + audio online) - Funny story introducing children to different musical instruments - Positive themes: dedication and leadership
