"The Adventures of Davy Crotchet,”
Los Angeles - Arab Today

Author Tami Kerr and illustrator Tanja Kerr come from a musically-inclined family, though their father was the only one with no musical background. As he became familiarized with musical terms, the word “crotchet” stuck due to its similarity with Crockett, the name of an American folk hero. This led him to imagine “The Adventures of Davy Crotchet,” which his daughters made into a vibrantly illustrated and educational children’s picture book providing information on instruments, musicians and the art of music itself.
With an art style reminiscent of the beloved Asterix and Tintin series of graphic novels, the Kerrs provide a fun-filled reading experience for entire families. The colorful pages of their book follow the musical adventures of Davy Crotchet, who spends most of his time as a quarter note, or crotchet, as he is known in England. He is born out of the attempts of a frustrated composer called Mel Odi trying to give expression to his compositions. Davy becomes so dissatisfied with the way he sounds that he finally speaks up. Mel decides to send Davy to Germany to find an old friend who makes flutes. Hopefully, Davy can bring him back a musical instrument. So begins Davy’s journey with many surprises along the way.
The hero’s exciting adventures tie in with historical events and developments that influenced European instrument making in the 17th century, providing readers young and old alike useful tidbits of knowledge that will help them gain a renewed appreciation for music, the instruments, and the artists who make it all possible.
