Marfree, acidfree stated 1stEd; not written-in, underlined, club, remainder or ex-library. Illus paperboard edgeworn, dented; unclipped DJ has tiny chips & shelfwear. Mail SAMEDAY! Publishers Weekly: In a small cottage in France a boy rebels against his parents, who want him to become a classical pianist. His dreams carry him in another direction: at night he breaks free and rides herd over cow-notes as the quarter note cowboy. The story is set in verse that becomes cumbersome at times, particularly at the end, when a sudden change in rhythm proves disruptive. The illustrations are vivid and painterly in a naive style, but some elements may prove confusing to young readers, such as the picture of a large angel embracing the house to show how the boy plays ``for spirits. '' No ages given. (December) School Library Journal: PreS-Gr 2 The quarter note cowpoke is a young French boy who plays the piano. His parents dream of a future concert career, but at night he dreams of playing American classics as a cow; 8.3 x 10.25 in.; 40 pages .
