ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Sound books have come a long way since the annoying and tinny ones of even a few years ago! This one has excerpts from 11 musical masterpieces, which are set within the story of a young boy learning to play piano and discovering where music can take the listener. With paragraphs on each composer, and the piece from which the excerpts are drawn, this is a fine way of introducing very young readers to classic music. Lindy Jones


Classical music comes to life like never before in this magical journey through 11 timeless compositions. Meet Allegro, an ordinary boy who can't stand practicing the piano. Those black dots on the page drive him crazy - until the music itself whisks him away on a breathtaking journey. Each beautifully illustrated scene on Allegro's journey is accompanied by a famous classical theme that can be played with the press of a button. Hear Grieg's Morning Mood while meandering through a misty meadow, Dvorak's New World Symphony while exploring uncharted lands, Debussy's Claire de Lune while pondering a shimmering night sky, and 7 more!

Beautiful gold foil, lavish illustrations, and high-quality sound make this a musical masterpiece to treasure forever.

David graduated from Brigham Young University with a BS in business management. He and his wife and son live in California where they enjoy lots of tacos, donuts, and, well . . . books.
