Piano Fingers

By Caroline Magerl
Illustrated by Caroline Magerl

Piano Fingers is a charming picture book about finding your talent, even if it takes some time and a little help.

Isla and Bea are two sisters who share a love of music. Big sister Isla plays the violin and Bea is waiting for her music to start. With the help of Maestro Gus, the cat ghost of the piano, Bea will make her sparkling debut. Piano Fingers is the latest magical creation from an award-winning and internationally distinguished creator that hits all the right notes.

  • Caroline Magerl's artwork continues to be gorgeous and strongly evocative.
  • This book teaches kids that it's okay not to excel at everything - especially with a loving older sibling to support you.
