Getting to Know the World's Greatest Composers: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
By Mike Venezia
Age 8-9 years
The author/illustrator of 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 historical photos, his own tongue-in-cheek cartoon illustrations, and factual biographical text combine to present the composers as they really were.
At four years old, Mozart learned to play the violin and when he was six, he wrote his first concerto. The child prodigy went on to write more than 800 pieces of music before his untimely death at the age of thirty-five.
The revised version adds new content: some important places in Mozart's life (with map), a timeline of his life, a quiz (with answers), and glossary.
