When your dad is a composer, there’s no way to escape his piano, even during a family vacation. Instead of enjoying the sun and the sea, he continues working relentlessly. But in doing so he manages to achieve so much: compose a lullaby for a yeti baby, make the hotel guests fall asleep, find a perfect music formula, participate in an underwater marathon, perform on the liner, and save the city from a horrendous storm, of course, with the power of music. Written with warmth and humour, this lyrical and inspiring story is full of music and magic. Every chapter turns into a new, unexpected adventure with lots of plot twists, surprises, and unique characters. Not to mention all the vacation drama that is so familiar to many children and their families.
