Title: Hamish and the Double Bass

Author: Margaret Dugdale

Reviewer: Donna Dobson

Audience: 5-8 

“And the music begins! Fast, slow, loud, soft. Gentle like  rain, strong like thunder; wandering like a stream…”

Hamish is a small boy who learns to play a cello, whilst his friends learn other instruments. The children discover it takes time and practise to master an instrument, but there is joy in doing so. As Hamish grows and masters his instrument, one day he is finally ready to play a much bigger instrument. 

This book is a lovely introduction to an array of instruments and their sounds. It introduces the idea of an orchestra and how it is made up of many instruments.
