What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book was jointly inspired by my love of music and wishing to share this with my two boys. My eldest is getting more and more interested in trying out Daddy's various musical instruments. "What's My Instrument?" introduces children to a number of different instruments, and will hopefully inspire them to try a few and find one that they would like to play.
Marilyn the Mongoose
was keen to start a band,
But she couldn’t play an instrument,
and hadn’t any plans…
Could I play the piano?
She had a little try.
But she couldn’t play the notes,
The keys were way too high!
Could I play the drums?
She bashed and crashed and smashed.
But she was too clumsy
and the drum kit got all trashed.

I am a father, children's author and illustrator from the West Midlands, UK.
I wrote this story for my two boys who are both toddlers and already very interested in music – especially Daddy's musical instruments.
Hopefully this book will be fun for others, and might even spark some musical interest in your children.
