Following on from Seph's exploits in book one, 'The ball in the box in the bag.' Seph has a yearning to learn to play guitar. Asit turns out his close friend John has a similar yearning, to learn to play piano. Well it was not entirely their fault that things became a little exaggerated about their, 'hidden' talents. Maybe it was to do with the excitement of Bill Hayley and the Comets record, 'Mambo Rock' that along with a little help from the ball in the box in the bag; Father O'flatherty, Aunt Maud, Uncle Charlie, and just about the whole of the village.
