Poor Lee! He used to be a jazzman who could make the piano go yimbatima-TANG—zang-zang. But now Lee has lost his hearing, and the bandleader had to let him go. So he decides to go to a school for the deaf to learn sign language. There he meets Max, who used to play the sax. Riding the subway to class, Lee and Max start signing about all the songs they love. A bass player named Rose joins in and soon they have a little sign language band. In no time they're performing for audiences in the subway, night after night. Living legend and Kennedy Center honoree Pete Seeger, renowned poet Paul DuBois Jacobs, and three-time Coretta Scott King honor winner R. Gregory Christie present an inspiring story on the power of music, overcoming obstacles, and all the different ways to hear the world. Schneider Family Book Award.
