OVERVIEW
When a millipede can’t find a band to join, he finds a way to make his own special kind of music!

“ . . . richly detailed artwork, colorful characters, and strong narrative will make for an enjoyable, musically oriented storytime.” —Booklist Online


Mac the millipede has lots and lots of arms and legs—which are useful for many things, but especially for making music. He dreams of playing in the Soggy Bog Talent Show with a band, but wherever he auditions, everyone says NO. No one wants him . . . until Mac comes up with an ingenious, satisfying one-millipede solution to his problem! Brendan Kearney’s funny, charming picture book will inspire all kids who like to march to the beat of their own drum.
PRAISE
“Mac is a musically gifted millipede, and as the Soggy Bog Talent Show approaches, being too shy for a solo performance, he packs his instruments and goes out in search of a band. After attempting to join an insect orchestra, an alley cat jazz group, and a barbershop quartet of birds, he ends up running for his life from the avian predators, finally escaping through a crowd—and onto the talent show stage. There, with the use of his many appendages and the support of new friends in the audience, Mac finds the courage to perform alone. Kearney tells a classic tale of the outsider trying to find his place in the world, and . . . Mac is an endearingly rendered character . . .  the richly detailed artwork, colorful characters, and strong narrative will make for an enjoyable, musically oriented storytime.” —Booklist Online
