When Rubin Plays

When Rubin Plays by Gracey Zhang. Rubin loves listening to the music played by the orchestra that visits his small hometown in Bolivia and is inspired to play. But when he gets his very own violin, the sounds that he can make sound very different! Rubin heads into the woods to practice alone and finds an unusual audience accompanying him: cats! As the local cats happily meow along with the violin, Rubin’s discordant playing gradually gets better and better, until he finds his own unique style.
