Mozart: The Wonder Boy

Children’s Literature Review: “The authors have written a number of books chronicling the lives of famous musicians and composers. The books also include pages of music which the young student is encouraged to play. The writers bring their subjects to life with interesting scenes from childhood and a style that avoids the dryness of so many biographies written for young readers.

This book offers a clear, simple, upbeat story of Mozart’s seemingly charmed childhood and his musical genius. He was truly a ‘wonder boy,’ and his musical abilities were apparent at the tender age of three. He traveled to play in the concert halls of Europe and for royalty as well, but he was always composing.”
