Not Quite Narwhal meets And Then It’s Spring in this charming picture book about marching to the beat of your own drum.

Juniper the badger can't wait to audition for the First Notes of Spring, the orchestra tasked with melting away winter and waking up spring every year. But she's shocked to be told by Mr. Moose the maestro that there's no room in the band for her loud percussion skills.

But as Juniper discovers other tappers, clappers, and noisemakers throughout the forest, she sets out to create a new song that melts the snow, wakes the hibernating animals, and makes the flowers bloom—a new song for Spring!

Watch the seasons change in this delightful picture book about being true to yourself, sure to leave readers with a spring in their step.
