Who was John Langstaff? How did he go from being a choir boy to creating one of the greatest musical masterpieces filled with traditional song, folk dance, and drama? This book will take its readers back to 1920 to where John grew up in a musical home and how his love of music grew and how he overcame many obstacles?
The textual layout is a little jumbled and hard to follow. The pictures, however, are fun to look at and the story is touching and inspiring. Readers who like biographies or who like the Christmas Revels will enjoy reading this book. EL (4-6), MS, HS. OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
