Giovanni (the Great)

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

On a warm and lazy summer evening in a little Italian district on Empress Street, two very important things occur: ten-year-old Antonio D’Angelo receives the birthday gift he always wanted: A new violin. And down the hall, the Ciccione parents receive the gift of a new baby boy who they name Giovanni. Determined to become a great violinist, Antonio overcomes a physical handicap and quickly reaches a skill level far beyond his years, despite his jealous violin instructor’s efforts to prevent Antonio’s progress at every opportunity. When Antonio discovers that his biggest fan lives right in his own house, he and Giovanni form an unbreakable bond held together by their passion for music and singing. As the pair embarks on a quest to attain their dreams of performing on the big stage, they carry out hilarious antics, learn life lessons, and share countless heartfelt moments as they discover that sometimes the journey is as much fun as the fi nish line.

If you love a book that is hard to put down, then Giovanni the Great is it! It's a story that young readers of all ages will enjoy, and is great for parents who like to read aloud! It emboldens children to work hard and smart so as to achieve their dreams. Themes of loyalty, honesty, enthusiasm, and comradery can be found throughout the book, with a healthy dose of rib-tickling humour. This family had fun reading it as a bed-time story. I'm sure it will captivate your young readers as well.

"Giovanni is not just a triumph of the imagination, but an enchanting gift to children of all ages. 

Pauline Winogron, take a bow!"

Sean Fitzpatrick, School Headmaster, Pennsylvania USA

My children delightfully devoured this energetic and beautifully quirky story of hope and humor. With clean prose, an eye for detail, and a whole lot of heart, "Giovanni the Great" is great.
