Read - let it touch your soul - DR. FUDDLE AND THE GOLD BATON will do that.Sure to reach a whole new generation of musicians, DR. FUDDLE AND THE GOLD BATON was written in honor of a mother who knew her son was brilliant, and it is a privilege to read his beautiful work.
The writer, Warren L. Woodruff, "holds Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Piano Performance as well as a Ph.D. in Musicology from the University of Miami School of Music". When you read his novel, you will be given a look at music like never before told. Music enters a new dimension as time stops when, after about the first few paragraphs, you make the decision to adventure into reading this story. Many thanks go to Warren L. Woodruff, Ludwig Van Beethoven, The Bach family, Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff, and Orpheus for this contribution to the world of children's literature. Read where readers are introduced to the Messengers of Music who bring them to a place where love meets strength and together with them you will hang on to hope amidst peril and the forces of evil. Perhaps fine music really may reach the ears of angels in dark times.
If you have a child interested in music they must read DR. FUDDLE AND THE GOLD BATON because they will thoroughly enjoy it; and even if your child is not interested in music, they will love reading this book as they nevertheless learn to appreciate harmony, chords, chromatic scale, chamber orchestra, rhythm, crescendos and fugue sounds with enthusiasm throughout mystery, intrigue and adventure, in a tale that may appear like a Scooby Doo adventure at first but brings you into a completely - worthy of the respect of one of the well written great mysteries - solved mystery that will become a classic in time. After all, there is a place to learn about how well sound may be put together with story.
Illustrations added to the story are from "an accomplished pencil and charcoal portrait artist", Donna Burtch. Overall, the novel is a job well done, thus earns a position on a livingroom/readingroom bookshelf beside the best in literature for Middle School and High School aged students.
