The Really Awful Musicians
By John Manders

Awful! Screechy! Bellowy! Terrible! Yuck! That's how the music sounds when the king's musicians play, and the king is fed up. So the royal musicians are fed to the royal crocodiles. Music and musicians are banned throughout the kingdom. It looks like the end of music, forever.

But then brave little piper Piffaro, a wagonload of really awful musicians, and a wise horse named Charlemagne, who teaches them to play together by using musical notation, succeed at playing harmoniously.

And everyone is happy...except the crocodiles.

The author's note at the end contains information about music in the time of Emperor Charlemagne around 800 A.D. and also describes the pipe and tabor, mandolin, contrabass recorder, sackbut and harp played in the story.
