Want to Be in a Band?
Suzzy Roche & Giselle Potter
Book Description: 

Do you want to be in a band? Well, here's how! First, bug your two older sisters to start a band, and then beg them to join. (It helps if they already know how to sing and play guitar.) Then there are some tricky parts, like getting over STAGEFRIGHT and practicing until the tips of your fingers ache and playing gigs at not-so-big-time music clubs. At least, that's the way our little sister narrator explains it in her "guide" on how to start a band, based on the real-life experiences of author Suzzy Roche.

Giselle Potter has illustrated numerous books for children, including Cecil the Pet Glacier by Matthea Harvey. A Parents' Choice Gold Award winner.


"With the characteristic wit, Roches disguises first-person memoir as second-person advice about making music." - Publishers Weekly
