Every day, Hosea Taylor takes the Number 42 bus into the city to play his shiny brass saxophone - and, hopefully, to earn some money.
Setting up in his favourite place, Hosea makes sweet music as people greet him with a smile, a little girl dances and crowds surround him.
A surprise ending reveals what the money is really for.
Kathleen Blasi's delightful text and Shane Evan's colourful images capture the real-life closeness between the much-loved Hosea - who shared his passion for music and life with everyone - and his community. This heartwarming picture book (based on a true story) depicts a day in the life of Hosea Taylor, a musician who, with his charm, talent and generosity, brought joy to everyone he met. An author's note explains how Blasi learned about Hosea Taylor (1948-2016) and what compelled her to write his story.
