I loved it....... It seamed like something a 10-12 year old would do if his or her parents wouldn't let them have a banjo!

A fairly simple story, but I think that was the point. Simply do what you want, people will have to like you for it.

However, it turns out that it's not that simple to build a banjo. Especially when your grandma won't let you use the cookie tin!

It was really good! That's right, parents, listen up - we can play the banjo if we want to!

I love how the girl supported the boy to build a cool banjo. I also like how the author wrote about banjos.I also have a friend saying that she hated this book because it is only about banjos.

In this book the author is saying that you should always try to achieve your dreams and never give up. It was a pretty good book.
