Product Details

Praise

“Does a fantastic job of making sound come alive on the page. . . . A fantastic book.” Book Riot

“This beautiful picture book biography celebrates the many ways we can listen—and the incredible creativity of this pioneering artist.” —A Mighty Girl

“Perfect for elementary school readers learning about music and fascinating women. . . . This is more than a story of overcoming discrimination due to disability—Stocker captures something about the artist’s need to be herself, regardless of abilities. . . . Lush brushstrokes, delicate character portraits, and warm colors make this a beautiful title to explore, and the ample text and sweet author’s note ensure that Glennie’s story will have an impact on readers. . . . Excellent . . . especially for musical readers looking to feel the music and not just hear it.” School Library Journal

“Radiant.” Publishers Weekly

“An intriguing, loving biography.” Kirkus

“Evelyn Glennie not only challenges the traditional role of a percussionist but what it means to listen to music. . . . Lyrical text [and] expressive swirls of vibrant colors throughout evoke the sounds Evelyn’s body feels and the beautiful music she creates in return.” Booklist

“Engaging text [and] vibrant illustrations, which effectively use color and pattern and movement to represent sound. An author’s note provides more information about this remarkable musician’s work.” The Horn Book
