WELCOME TO SOUND CITY

SOUND CITY

Sound City is a place where characters inspired by music iconography live and engage in delightful adventures! In Alice Cotton’s highly original and beautifully illustrated books, young readers meet the fanciful citizens of Sound City, such as the debonair Detective Reed, a half rest who leads readers through thrilling musical mysteries.  They’ll bump into Allegro, the energetic eighth note and Hilo, a super cool treble clef found in a song called The Peppermint Twist.  They’ll weave through sound waves and vibrating strings.  They’ll discover the forest of rests, and go on a trip into the mysterious Town of Changing Shapes. Along the way, readers learn about music in a natural way.  If lucky, they might find themselves in the garden where pink singing flowers grow!
