In a small village in Paraguay, Diego dreams of giving music lessons to the children he sees each day. The only problem: there aren't enough instruments to go around.
But when he and Nicolas, a carpenter, look to a nearby landfill, they see instruments in the making. Soon, a paint can, a wooden plank, and a faucet knob become the start of a violin—and their recycled instruments give the kids in town new ways to express themselves.
Inspired by the true story of La Orquesta de Instrumentos Reciclados de Cateura, Hua Lin Xie's first graphic novel is a big-hearted ode to the power of music.

This is a great story about the value of recycled items and how a community of children created musical instruments from recycling piles at the local dump site. It also gives a glimpse into Paraguayan culture and is told in graphic novel format which appeals to a broader group of readers.
