"As a guitar playing father of two wonderful daughters, who absolutely loved this book, my only hope is that Mr. Amoriello brings Maestro Armadillo back for MANY more adventures in Guitarland."

"Ukulele Sam Strums In The Sand" is a delightful, "tropi-colored" book full of ukulele magic. Kick off your shoes and join in the fun! -Jumpin' Jim Beloff, author of The Ukulele: A Visual History and arranger of The Daily Ukulele songbook series.
Having just witnessed two one-and-a-half-year-old twins lose their minds for my acoustic guitar, I totally support anything that draws kids to the instrument. This book—which teaches children about the various parts of the guitar, why it’s so fun and cool, and who some of the great players are, all via a guitar-playing armadillo(!)—will get kids hooked. Brian May, Steve Hackett, Jennifer Batten, and I all love this book!
“THIS IS VERY COOL STUFF FOR KIDS !!!”
“This is a great path to start on for you to eventually learn to play your favorite music!”
“I started playing guitar when I was 8 years old. I can’t imagine my life without the ability to be able to express, create, belong, and perform through my instrument. I wish every kid could at least give it a try and feel the frequencies vibrating in their hands! I’m happy Tom has written this teaser to pique kids’ interests.”
“This book will inspire young guitarists in a wonderful imaginative way.”
“Maestro Armadillo is doing it right. Fantastic way to spark creativity! ”
“A great fun and entertaining way to introduce kids
to guitar and educate about the instrument.
Very cool. Where was a book like this when I was a kid?”
"It's never too early to have fun with the uke. Ukulele Sam's wonderful book throws wide the door to that fun."
"a charming little book that captures the spirit of making music with a charming little instrument!"
"With vivid color and enjoyable illustrations, Ukulele Sam helps to spread aloha with the ukulele beyond our island shores."
