Eight-year-old Abigail is conflicted about whether to continue public school or go to music school. While she loves singing, playing ukulele, and writing songs, she isn’t sure she is ready to make such a big change. If she chooses music school, will she make new friends? Will she be good enough?
Before she can decide, she wakes to find that her favorite stuffed animal has come to life and needs to go on a quest to find his lost friends who are tied to the magic of children’s imaginations. If they don’t find the others and return them to their living state, the fate of the world’s sparkle and creativity will be undone. Can they do it in time? Ride along with Abigail as she searches for both the missing animals and who she wants to be. Features pen-and-ink illustrations with watercolor. Includes 10 bonus pages of fun activities!

A deftly crafted and consistently entertaining novel for young readers ages 5 to 9, "Hope's Melody" showcases author Jeanna Kunce's impressive flair for originality and storytelling. —Midwest Book Review
This book is very sweet. You can feel the magic building as you read along. It would be an excellent read aloud in a classroom or at home with your kids. My kids enjoyed all enjoyed it (ages 5-13). As a bonus there are lots of fun activities related to the characters in the back of the book. Looking forward to reading more books by Jeanna Kunce. —Amanda, Barnes & Noble customer review
We are from La Crosse and received this book from a family member. My 8 year old daughter loves it and wants more! She even wrote her own book called Hopes, Dreams and Melodies. Don't worry...I won't let her publish it. Please write more books and available on Amazon! —Carrie, Amazon customer review
