Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
From taking showers and putting on underwear to donning tuxedos or black dresses, Kuskin and Simont describe step-by-step how one hundred five people get dressed for work on a Friday night in winter. The text is surrounded by wonderfully humorous illustrations, some showing only feet or torsos peeking from the page edges. This brilliant work shows the glamorous world of musicians from a perspective familiar to all.
Time
One of those rare collaborations to which the word classic instantly adheres. .

Meet the Author

Karla Kuskin wrote more than fifty books for children, including the Philharmonic Gets Dressed, Green as a Bean, and Moon, Have You Met My Mother She was the winner of the NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry, among other honors. And once, long ago, may have given her son a woolly red hat.

Marc Simont was born in 1915 in Paris. His parents were from the Catalonia region of Spain, and his childhood was spent in France, Spain, and the United States. Encouraged by his father, Joseph Simont, an artist and staff illustrator for the magazine L'Illustration, Marc Simont drew from a young age. Though he later attended art school in Paris and New York, he considers his father to have been his greatest teacher.

When he was nineteen, Mr. Simont settled in America permanently, determined to support himself as an artist. His first illustrations for a children's book appeared in 1939. Since then, Mr. Simont has illustrated nearly a hundred books, working with authors as diverse as Margaret Wise Brown and James Thurber. He won a Caldecott Honor in 1950 for illustrating Ruth Krauss's The Happy Day, and in in 1957 he was awarded the Caldecott Medal for his pictures in A Tree is Nice, by Janice May Udry.

Internationally acclaimed for its grace, humor, and beauty, Marc Simont's art is in collections as far afield at the Kijo Picture Book Museum in Japan, but the honor he holds most dear is having been chosen as the 1997 Illustrator of the Year in his native Catalonia. Mr. Simont and his wife have one grown son, two dogs and a cat. They live in West Cornwall, Connecticut. Marc Simont's most recent book is The Stray Dog.

    DELIGHTFUL

    Years ago my son was 5 and had just started violin lessons. The book was a huge hit from the start. Every night before bed he insisted on reading this book, and only this book. And this continued for a long time. I was very pleased to find such a fun, high quality book that specifically had a positive Classical music focus. My son still loves to play the violin. At age 15 he is now 3rd chair in the most advanced youth orchestra in the state. Occasionally I will show him the cover of the book, he gives me a big grin, and will want to flip through it just for fun. What more could you ask for?
