All the musicians in the kingdom are so awful that the king&nbspsends his men-at-arms to round up musicians and feed them to the royal crocodiles. Pipe and drum player Piffaro heads for the border, collecting&nbsp other refugee musicians on the way. Their jam session on the road is so&nbspawful that the horse pulling the wagon figures out a way to make them all play the same music at the same time - a system of lines and hoofprints.&nbsp(In fact, there was a time before musical notation was devised, but that's the only part of this story that is true!)
John Manders has illustrated more than thirty picture books. A graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and a founding member of the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators, he lives near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Visit his website at .
