Little Rat can't wait to make music like the violinists she sees at concerts in the city. But her biggest obstacle is practicing. It's boring . It's hard . And her violin squawks a lot . Luckily, Little Rat's teacher believes she has talent. And her new tutor agrees. With their encouragement--and some fine-tuning--Little Rat hits all kinds of high notes. But most important, she discovers where beautiful music really comes from.

In this third book of Little Rat's celebrated tales of triumph, Monika Bang-Campbell and Molly Bang prove that with a bit of pluck, patience, and practice, anything is possible.

I mostly liked the book, which was cute and shows the value of discipline and practice. I was not so keen on the use of the word "stupid" when reading it to my three-year-old, so I added to the story. In my modified version, Little Rat's mother explains that we do not use the word "stupid." I thought about censoring that part of the book altogether, but it presented an irresistible teaching moment.

So very enjoyable, it's worth a repeated reading! The vocabulary is superb and richly used, and the illustrations are sublime! Both the story line and the pictures are an accurate portrayal of children, in this case, mice children.
