Publisher Description:
A young boy discovers the joys of making music in this rhythmic, irresistible picture book from Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator Brian Pinkey.

One day when Max doesn't feel like talking to anybody, he finds two sticks that make a perfect pair of drumsticks. He starts with a Pat...pat-tat on his thighs. Then he's Dum...dum-dedumming on some boxes. Until finally he's Cling...clang...da-BANGING on the garbage pails.

Suddenly, when a marching band Thump-di-di-thumps around Max's corner, the most wonderful thing happens, and Max learns that you don't need to talk to say how you feel--especially when you've got music.
