The article about Joshua was really great. I found his books at Web Link He also goes to Peery Music Academy in Mountain View to learn piano. I loved the drawings. Not many children have written and published 19 books.

I am proud to have had Joshua as a piano student at Peery Piano. He is such a hard worker and never gives up. He is an amazing kid and what an author and artist! Way to go Joshua!
