 About the Book 

Alan Ogilvy is a peculiar and sensitive boy—over protected by his quirky parents, and a budding musical prodigy. The Odd Boy charts his life from the age of three through twelve as he, among other experiences, is led about town on a leash by his mother, tap dances on an art-deco ferry, plays piano for Greta Garbo, discovers coffins in a bachelor neighbors basement, becomes a love-slave for the girl across the alley, kisses his best boyfriend, and competes in an international piano competition. Charming, poignant, and heartbreaking, The Odd Boy and His Precious Piano, through a unique child’s voice, speaks directly to the adult heart.
