The Old Banjo

Dennis Haseley. Aladdin Paperbacks, $3.95 (31pp) ISBN 978-0-689-71380-4

In answer to a boy's query, an old banjo in the attic of a ramshackle farmhouse remembers when all the instruments there made glorious music; PW praised this ``uncommonly moving and heartening tale of hope re-born . . . enhanced by Stephen Gammell's haunting art.'' Ages 6-10. (Mar.)
