Ages 4-9; 40 pages full color. Neko loves playing double bass in the Butterfield Symphony Orchestra--until the Twigget family of mice takes up residence inside his instrument. Neko can't ignore Mama Twigget's intense staring, Papa's boisterous dancing, or the twins who ride his bow and limbo at his feet. His playing suffers and, in a dramatic moment, Neko is fired in front of the entire orchestra and its audience. Neko is sad until something surprising happens that allows him--with the help of the Twiggets--to discover that playing music for himself is just as important as playing for others.
