Music, magic, and a real-life miracle meld in this virtuosic, genre-defying tour de force from storytelling maestro Pam Muñoz Ryan.

Lost and alone in the forbidden Black Forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters and suddenly finds himself entwined in a puzzling quest involving a prophecy, a promise, and a harmonica.

Decades later, Friedrich in Germany, Mike in Pennsylvania, and Ivy in California each become interwoven when the very same harmonica lands in their lives, binding them by an invisible thread of destiny. All the children face daunting challenges: rescuing a father, protecting a brother, holding a family together. How their suspenseful solo stories converge in an orchestral crescendo will resound in your heart long after the last note has been struck.

Richly imagined and structurally innovative, ECHO pushes the boundaries of form and shows us what is possible in how we tell stories. With music by Corky Siegel.


  • Deb Kipp

    Excellent production of a thought provoking, educational, and clever novel.

  • Drew Martin

    Each story is told with a passion that draws you in emotionally. I was able to envision each character - I was happy when they were happy and sad when they were sad. Good Job!

  • Donna Deodato

    This is an amazing book! Pam Munoz Ryan has done it again. Echo keeps you engaged from the first page to the last... My vote for the Newbery!!
