Young Mozart is a delightful masterpiece of art and humour for young readers to enjoy. This book will certainly lift any spirit up, and there are fun activities, like a maze and crossword puzzle, included too! William Augel‘s creation inspired me to watch the movie, Amadeus, again because is brought forth that essence I recall in the film. His narrative approach includes the style from the Sunday funnies.
For those able to read sheet music, the scores found in this book are playable. I remember enough from my youth where I learned piano. But with no synthesizer nearby, I must visit a music store with a preview page and hope I do not embarrass myself. While I can’t say if they are straight from Mozart’s compositions or not, I’m inclined to assume they are.
