Book Description William has the brown hair and Jules the gold. They are ten months old. This dulcimer is all their father has to give them. A weathered stranger delivers an old wicker chest to the Carbuncles' doorstep. In it they find two sleeping baby boys and a beautiful silver-stringed instrument. For the sake of appearing charitable to their neighbors, the Carbuncles take the boys in, but William and Jules are consigned to the chilly attic, and the dulcimer is locked away -- until William is old enough to play it, whereupon he discovers a natural musical talent that leads him on a bittersweet journey to self-discovery. Featuring luminous illustrations by Caldecott Honor artist Brian Selznick, this haunting tale byNational Book Award finalist Tor Seidler has a transcendent lyricism that soars as gracefully as William's mysterious music.
