Introducing . . . The Lords of Melody!! From this acclaimed author comes an hilarious new novel for upper primary about the weird and wonderful things that can happen when you have music in your life - whether you want it or not!

The Lord family live in the worst house on the best street. It might have been different if Suzi Lord’s rock ‘n’ roll parents, Strum and Miss Katy, hadn’t stumbled on their way to stardom but after one hit single in Finland, it’s been Lentil Slop Thing for dinner ever since.

But life is about to get a lot more interesting at 92 Melody Street. Renting out their spare room on ZedBedZ seemed like a good idea but with the ghost of a grumpy drummer, a long-lost grandfather as their first guest, angry opposition from a residents action group, AND a broken leg in the first practice match of the soccer season, Suzi ain’t havin’ much of a rockin’ good time.

Then she dares to pick up a set of drum sticks and things really get wild.

With the driving beat of a rock anthem, the heart of a country ballad, and the vibe of the latest hip-hop hit, this hilarious mash-up proves that you just can’t stop the music!
