Myra is used to traipsing round the world after her brother, but it doesn’t stop her being fed up!

So your brother’s a world-famous violinist?That’s great! Or is it?

Myra, Wolfgang (named after Mozart!) and Ettie thought it was at first, but after four years’ touring with their brilliant brother Sebastian, they’ve changed their minds.

What they long for now is a home of their own, not a hotel in Vienna, or Venice or Moscow. But how can they convince their parents of that when their parents believe that “becoming world citizens” is all any child could ever want?

Review:

“Noel Streatfeild’s position in the children’s book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and real understanding of the surfaces of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort.”
TLS

From the Back Cover:

So your brother's a world-famous violinist? That's great! Or is it?

Myra, Wolfgang (named after Mozart) and Ettie thought it was at first, but after four years' touring with their brilliant brother Sebastian, they've changed their minds.

Now what they long for is a home of their own, not a hotel in Vienna, or Venice, or Moscow.

But to their mother and father, being "world citizens" is all any child could want. How ever are the children going to make the grown-ups see sense?
