Product Details


Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, December 20, 2010:
“Rusch’s rich prose and Johnson and Fancher’s lavishly detailed collages … seamlessly blend to form a moving portrait of an unsung musician.”

Review, Kirkus Reviews, January 1, 2011:
“This is an extraordinarily constructed work: Rusch … illuminates in simple but vivid terms how important music was to Maria … Johnson and Fancher echo the elegant construction of the text … so every image is full of texture and heft.”

Review, Portland Oregonian, March 13, 2011:
“This beautiful book is marketed for children ages 5-8; however, it is a masterpiece, resonating with all lovers of music, regardless of age.”
