Getting to Know the World's Greatest Composers: George Gershwin
By Mike Venezia
Age 6-9 years
The author/illustrator for the highly successful Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists series lends his creative talents to another fun, informative series, this one featuring world famous composers. Venezia's clever mix of full-color photos, his own tongue-in-cheek cartoonlike illustrations, and factual biographical information presents each composer as they really were, along with the forces that inspired their world-renowned music.
Gershwin came up with a whole new and important American musical sound, from his brilliant and innovative Rhapsody in Blue to the creation of one of the world's favorite operas, Porgy and Bess.
