There are ten imaginative tales in this book: the first is about a child who hears music coming from the sky but who can’t convince people around him about what he hears. He sends a pink bird up into the sky to collect the music from the clouds. He waits several days for the bird’s return, but the bird doesn’t come back. In the meantime, he finds a friend who can also hear the music. Another story is about a man called Musto who played the same song again and again until one day he finally got invited to play his song at a wedding party, then a story about Titi who wants to meet the boy who gives a paper boat with his name on it to everyone he meets, next the tale of an old Chinese puppet that disappeared one day from the window of an antique shop and returned with a book years later, one about how the sun got bored of living in the sky and hid under a child’s bed before being shot back into the sky by the child’s catapult, and finally a story about the chaos created by musical notes that fled during a concert and went to an island.
