The Notable Characters

Lenny's storybook, "The Notable Characters" introduces basic music terms and theory while telling his funny story of two groups of kids who have formed bands. The bands are; the Notables who represent five basic note symbols in a metaphorical way, and then there are the Rest siblings, who represent the rest symbols. Notes are symbols in music notation that indicate a sound is to be made for a certain amount of time. Rest symbols indicate silence. Both groups, the Notables and the Rests, approach music-making from two completely different world views and as a result they comically compete for popularity in the island metropolis called Metronoma. The book features Lenny's colorful illustrations of the characters navigating this wonderful Caribbean (fictional) island called Realla (pronounced "Ree All Ya").You will discover a diversity of musical tastes, cultural and ethnic backgrounds in this charming tale. You may enjoy the audiobook, exclusively which is downloadable at washentree.com. The audiobook features songs mentioned in the story as band performances. The recordings were produced, arranged and performed by Lenny, and they are the Notables songs, “Noise Will Be Noise” and “We Had Our Nap We Had Our Meal And Now We Feel Okay.” There is the song attributed to the Rests in the story called “Doin' the Rest Stop.”
