Review: This book has been described as Harry Potter meets Beethoven, and I think that is a pretty good 4 word description. If your kids love the mystery kingdom of Harry Potter and music, they will love this book. It is my understanding that it may be being adapted for the movie screen and that would be a lovely thing, as the book is full of faith, intelligence and striving to excel at whatever you undertake, Add in the classical Greek undertones and you have a book that educates as it entertains and perfect for light Summer reading for preteens!
About the Author: Dr. Warren Woodruff is an Atlanta-based music teacher and performer whose love for leading his students to excel at classical music was the inspiration for this story.
