I love when the artistry of a picture book biography mirrors its subject. Instead of chapters, Elizabeth Rusch, the author, writes in movements of the Sonata form to tell the life of Maria Ana Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus' sister. As well as telling the life of a gifted musician overlooked in the musical world, this book also introduces such musical terms as allegro, sforzando, development, recapitulation, and coda. What a brilliant example to share with writers of creative nonfiction.
