Melody Mooner Takes Lessons
Written by Frank B. Edwards
Illustrated by John Bianchi
Melody Mooner is finally old enough to take lessons but she can’t decide which one is just right for her.
Each month, a family member signs her up for something new. Mother takes her to ballet. Father introduces her to skiing and Mortimer suggests judo. But none of them feels right until she discovers music lessons — and the tuba.
“In March, Grandmother Mooner paid for ballet lessons, but Melody said, “I don’t think so. All that twirling makes me dizzy.”
This delightfully funny story takes young readers through the months of the year — an explores the possibilities with all kinds of different lessons and pastimes.
As usual, illustrator John Bianchi adds a zany dash of humour to a simple rhythmical text that is fun reading for parents and children.
