Everyone's always telling Will to stop making so much noise...
- that is, until he meets music teacher Mr Brand. He thinks Will's not just noisy but that he has a gift and must learn to play the violin.
But Will doesn't feel special. He can never find peace to practice at home and carrying a violin around school is too embarrassing. There's also the small matter of his stage fright...
Can he really become the star Mr Brand believes in?
Beloved and award-winning author Anne Fine returns with a touching, musical story of patience, practice and courage. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+.
A Remarkable Ear will be published by Barrington Stoke on 15th June 20120.
