202 pp, 7 7/8" H. Dust jacket art by William Stobbs. B&w illustrations. First printing in the Oxford Children's Library series. " 'What a pity she isn't musical,' they said of Kit Haverard when she neglected her piano practice. For Kit was the youngest member of a large Quaker family which had long been famous for its interest in music. But when she went to stay with her cousins in Gramercie, Kit found that she could take part in the musical tradition of her family after all: for there she helped to make music that was very different to the sort the village teacher knew; and there she met Papa Andreas, the gentle musician whose help and guidance were to mean so much to her. Interwoven with the description of how Kit discovers her great gift is the story of her schooldays at Heryot; and we leave her looking forward with happiness to a life of singing." Previous owner's name in ink on front pastedown, tiny ink marks at top edge of free front endpaper, two page leaves with small corner crease, small bump at bottom of spine, one tiny corner bump. Dust jacket has small sticker stain on front flap, tiny ink mark at top corner of front flap, very light edge wear/wrinkling, faint line indentatiom on front panel.
