From the Publisher:

"A thoroughly likable fantasy, Karlins's (Mendel's Ladder) tale hums merrily along to the accompaniment of first-time picture book artist Davis's sleekly stylized illustrations. . . .Davis's interpretation of the night-flight sequence . . . is particularly inspired."
-- Publishers Weekly

Readers will cheer for "Background Bernie" in this joyous, whimsical story about the power--and magic--of music.

Illustrator Jack E. Davis makes his picture book debut with his bright and zany style in Music Over Manhattan.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Bernie loved being on the roof at night.  A cool breeze ruffled his hair, and all the lights of Brooklyn gleamed.  Uncle Louie, world-famous musician and master of many instruments, picked up his trumpet and began playing "Moonlight Over Manhattan."  Bernie was sure that it was the most beautiful song in the world.  With the music playing, the stars seemed to shine brighter.  The pigeons strutted and cooed.  Even the laundry was dancing in time.
