Playing From the HeartBook - 2016
An inspiring, moving story for budding musicians everywhere, the acclaimed creator of The Dot, Sky Colour and Ish tells the story of a father and son, who connect through the powerful language of music. When a young boy begins to play on his family's piano, revelling in the fun of plunking the keys, his father signs him up for lessons so that he can learn to play properly. With his father's encouragement, Raj learns notes, then scales, then songs, and finally classical pieces that his father can recognize and be proud of. But the more Raj practises and the more skilled he becomes, the less he enjoys playing - until he grows up and stops playing altogether. But when his father becomes ill and asks Raj to play for him, will Raj still remember how to play from the heart?
