Melody Trumpet

Gabrielle Tozer

As the daughter of global music superstars, Melody Trumpet was supposed to be extraordinary - a melodic genius to carry on the Trumpet legacy.

But, as was discovered when Melody screamed her first out-of-tune note as a baby, this wasn’t to be.

Ten years on, Melody is still kept away from the world in Trumpet Manor.

If only secrets could stay hidden…

For Melody Trumpet, it’s about finding the extraordinary in ordinary! 


‘Melody Trumpet burst into the world with a screech that rattled the windowpanes of Trumpet Manor. It was a perfectly ordinary sound for a newborn baby…’

But Melody is a Trumpet. As the daughter of Viola Trumpet, the opera superstar, and Barry T. Trumpet, the renowned conductor, Melody is meant to be extraordinary, a musical genius to carry on the Trumpet legacy, not ordinary.

Ten years on and many, many musical instruments and hours of lessons later, Melody is still searching for her melodic talent. This is a secret so big that it threatens to destroy the Trumpets’ reputation as iconic musical visionaries. In desperation, Melody is kept away from the world; if only secrets could stay hidden and the Battyville Elite School for Musically Gifted Children Debut Gala wasn’t so soon.

With a little help from some unexpected friends – Clementine, Freddie and The Workshop – Melody may just find her talent and her perfect place. But she will have to start believing in what she can do, rather than what she can’t.

This fun and clever story by the Gold Inky award-winning Gabrielle Tozer is her first for junior readers, and it’s a great adventure about finding your own voice and being happy with who you are. For ages 7+.
