An appealing, accessible, and throught-provoking introduction to a rarely covered subject.
"Roth's naif collages, populated by doll-like figures, quickly shoo away any misgivings that music history could be a bore, and make a marvelous counterpoint for her carefully researched prose." Publishers Weekly
"The language is simple and intimate. . .wonderful colors and fibers. . .attractive."
School Library Journal
"A gifted author-illustrator offers a lovely picture book...Her collage illustrations are always interesting." Buffalo News
Roth winningly narrates the ups and downs of Guido's efforts to work out his ideas and get them accepted. But it's the illustrations that really make the book sing: torn-paper collages wittily celebrating musical marks everywhere, from the staff lines of plowed furrows and stripey sunset clouds to the O-shaped mouths of chanting monks.
The Washington Post
"It's edgy and childlike at the same time, a quirky approach to a quirky subject." The San Francisco Chronicle

Great book but terrible ebook. It is not readable. Save yourself the trouble. Extremely dissapointing and shameful that a publisher or bn would find it acceptable to sell this. I was planning to use in my classroom but will now wait until I can get the hardcover. I will be requesting a refund. Shameful!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
