9780060726744: Mozart: The Wonder Child: A Puppet Play in Three Acts

Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgang Gottlieb Mozart was only three years old--not much bigger than his name--on the day his life changed forever.

So begins this vivid biography about one of the most legendary prodigies in history. Award-winning author and illustrator Diane Stanley engagingly tells the story of a brilliant boy who grew up to be a complex and often troubled young man--a man who composed some of the most beautiful music of all time.

With stunning and expressive illustrations, she portrays Mozart's turbulent life as a marionette show, inspired by the famous Salzburg Marionette Theatre, using an innovative artistic approach to present the life of a renowned musical genius. In concise and lyrical prose, Stanley presents an honest and sympathetic portrait of the boyhood and tragically short adulthood of a composer whose music has lived on for more than two hundred years.

Review:

"As with Stanley's other biographical works, she manages a neat overview of her subject's life in surprisingly few pages; audiences will particularly appreciate her focus on Mozart the kid and the family that never quite forgave him for growing up and striking out of his town."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"The staged effects, from the opening curtain to the suspended cherubs carrying footnotes, are well-suited to the story who spent most of his life performing or composing."--School Library Journal
