The Lovereading4Kids comment
By turns thrilling adventure and enchanting fantasy, this novel brims with music and magic as Sylvie tries to understand why her dog has lost its bark, the birds have stopped singing and her music-making father has disappeared. As she sets off on her journey with best-friend, but tone deaf, George, they are drawn into the haunting world of the Songman. This is definitely a classic in the making; a compelling and original story with vivid writing and some truly unforgettable scenes.
