Author Info
Aliki Brandenburg, who is known simply as "Aliki," planned to be an illustrator ever since she was recognized for her artistic talents as a mere kindergarten student. A graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art, Aliki wrote and illustrated her first book, THE STORY OF WILLIAM TELL, in 1960. Since that time she has written and illustrated many of her own books and has also illustrated the works of other authors.
"There is something here for everyone, from the youngest fans of the simplest melody, to older children looking for a starting point for research, to anyone interested in finding out more about a favorite art form."
"[T]here are a lot of enticing tidbits invitingly packaged here, making this browsable and unintimidating, and the juxtaposition of historical overview and discussion of the reader's own musical exploits makes an understated but bolstering point about context and tradition."
From the Publisher
