About the Author
Vitezslav Mecner is a student of the UMPRUM (Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design) in Prague, majoring in Illustration and Graphics. He manages to do a custom work in addition to studying. His illustrations do not have one distinctive style, but they are united by expressive colourness and his own humor. He devotes his free time to music and to his family.

Selected for the CBC's 2022 September Hot Off The Press Reading List

"This was so cute!!! As a musician, I love books that inspire children to pick up musical instrument! I was very impressed with Patti's willingness to try so many instruments. I love how she is so curious about all the instruments and their different sounds. The illustrations are adorable and I loved the bright colors. Every page is full of fun! The artwork of the instruments is fairly accurate, which is difficult with stringed instruments. I loved it!" --Luminous Libro Blog

"This Czech import is a charming celebration of the love of music. The gorgeous art uses deep, expressive colors to lovingly portray the instruments, especially in the double page spread of stringed instruments, in which the instruments look like works of art in a museum. The brown skinned child and her father, who appear to be South Asian, are a sweet pair, and clearly dad wants Patti to walk out of that store with an instrument. It's hard to tell when the story takes place - the young hipster with a goatee at the music store could be from the 1960's or now! There is a spinning LP on the cover, and those have certainly come back in style. This is a winning title for families who want to encourage their littles to think about playing an instrument." ―Youth Services Book Review
