Matt Blackett, Guitar Player Magazine June 2016

 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!
