Young newcomers to the picture book pup Cassie will find her latest adventure needs no prior introduction to be immediately accessible and entertaining, while prior fans will delight in yet another Cassie story; this one revolving around the pup's introduction to music.
Cassie's new owner, Mrs. Applebaum, teaches music. Cassie feels she's in an exceptional home because, after all, she learned music as a puppy, running across the piano keys, and believes she's a musical prodigy herself. Obviously, she's in the perfect place to appreciate her talents!
The trouble is, she speaks a language humans don't understand. The young students she admonishes to play such classics as Bow Wow Black Dog and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Bone don't seem to know the tune or understand her instructions on how to play the piano. How can Cassie assist the venerable music teacher's job when all the humans hear is incessant barking?
This picture book tale will require good reading skills or parental read-aloud assistance but offers an unusual dog's viewpoint of matters and outlines events in an engaging, thought-provoking manner.
Pet/human communications, a small dog's burning desire to be helpful, and music lessons gone awry intersect in a story that is delightfully fun, nicely capturing a spirited little dog's efforts to be an asset.
Kids and parents will relish Cassie's upbeat and enthusiastic personality, creative ideas, and a savvy and kind teacher's solution to what could have been a major issue.
Any child who loves dogs will find Cassie's Marvelous Music Lessons a lively, entertaining read that holds a message about creative, positive problem-solving and communication.
From the Author
The one which started it all! It is part of the Cassie series. Writing this book and all the other Cassie books means the world to me as they are based on my real life dog. She is forever immortalized through these books, and she influenced many an idea.

Cassie, the loveliest dog ever, finds that music is her real call when her new home introduces her to a world of beautiful rhymes and tunes. Mrs Applebaum, her new owner, takes time to understand that. The story of their mutual struggle to understand each other is heartwarming and one of the loveliest I ever read to my kids!
