When we tipped this book off the shelf at the library, it landed with a "thunk!" in the book bag. It's a hefty read -- 587 pages!
But just like with Tristan Strong, our family really loves reeeaaaally long books, so it was an instant hit. It doesn't hurt that my two kiddos study violin, as well, and could fill in some of the taken-for-granted "musical" elements of the book from their performance experiences.
Echo is the story of how a harmonica brings together the right people at the right time to save their lives, although you don't really know that when you start reading. In the process, it frees three princesses bound by a witch's curse. It is intricately plotted and a joy to read.
