A kitten s stroll down a keyboard leads to a celebrated one-minute composition in this charming portrait of a remarkable true friendship.
Moshe Cotel was a composer who lived in a noisy building on a noisy street in a noisy city. But Moshe didn t mind. Everything he heard was music to his ears. One day, while out for a walk, he heard a small, sad sound that he d never heard before. It was a tiny kitten "e;Come on, little Ketzel,"e; Moshe said, "e;I will take you home and we will make beautiful music together."e; And they did in a most surprising way. Inspired by a true story, Leslea Newman and Amy June Bates craft an engaging tale of a creative man and the beloved cat who brings unexpected sweet notes his way."e;
