Summary


No matter where you are, you can find the perfect instrument and join this band! A winning pick for young readers who adore books by Jory John, Mac Barnett, and Christian Robinson.

The band director knows everything about all the instruments, and he can't wait to help find the perfect one for you. But an irrepressible young girl keeps interrupting with enthusiastic BOOM BOOM BOOMS on her drum. At least until the band director introduces one instrument that's even louder.

This laugh-out-loud picture book from National Book Award-longlisted author Colleen AF Venable is packed with boundless energy and giggle-worthy jokes--as well as information about eight instruments commonly played in school bands. Illustrator Lian Cho's exuberant artwork matches the text note for note and practically leaps off the page.

This joyous picture book will leave young readers eager to pick up an instrument and learn how to play! The Oboe Goes Boom Boom Boom celebrates music and will entertain young readers in the home and classroom alike.

Each child in the band is inspired by a real-life musician, and biographies are included at the end of the book.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The oboe, of course, does not go "Boom Boom Boom." But each time jolly-looking band director Mr. V., who sports bright red suspenders, gives a student the opportunity to play their instrument of choice, he's interrupted by little Felicity, who has already discovered her love of whaling on an enormous drum. Mr. V--an afterword notes he's based on Venable's (Kiss Number 8) father--never fully loses his cool. As he introduces eight different instruments, he always has a vivid analogy, fascinating factoid, or inspirational pep talk to hold his rambunctious audience's attention. "When you start playing," he says of the oboe, "it WILL sound like an angry duck who landed on an icy lake. But play it right and that duck will learn to ice skate and glide its way to Olympic gold." Debut illustrator Cho's boisterously choreographed collage and acrylic vignettes play right along: frisky typography and balloons of musical notation float through the air, and visual nudges and jokes elevate the story without sidetracking it. The afterword includes short, inclusive bios of diverse real-life classical, rock, and jazz musicians upon whom the book's characters are based. Ages 4--8.
