Stepping Up: The Bully in the Band (Adventures with Music #4) By Paul Kimpton, Ann Kaczkowski Kimpton Cover Image


The Adventures with Music series gives kids great stories and role models where the heroes are musicians

Set in Indiana as World War II comes to an end, this fourth book in the Adventures with Music series sees hero Dale face his own challenges—including bullying from the first-chair trumpet player.  "Just as quickly as the storm had arrived, it moved away from the fort, and as the sky cleared, so did Dale's mind. He opened the door to the fort, and saw that lightning split his dog Scout's favorite tree down the middle, the two halves forming the letter Y. This is the fork in the road. He had a choice of which fork to take: either face his issues with the first-chair trumpet player or continue to be manipulated and bullied for the rest of his life."
