Horn Book Guide"This fictional account lyrically narrated in the composer's voice presents key moments in Antonio Vivaldi's life and musical career. . . Terra cotta-toned ink-line and watercolors, which accent Vivaldi's red hair, effectively depict Venetian landmarks. Musical notation decorates the endpapers. Recommended." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The tension between spiritual and secular demands makes for an involving story, and Shefelman's smooth telling does it justice. . . Listeners who are content with a broadly imagined, biographically inspired tale may be pleased with both the domestic drama and Tom Shefelman's watercolor tour along the canals and through the churches and palaces of Venice." Kirkus Reviews
"Fetching introduction to one of the great masters of the Baroque era." Publishers Weekly
"The first-person narration offers an accessible and personable view of Vivaldi's intense passion for music. . . A noteworthy picture book biography." Sacramento Bee
"This fact-based story of the famous musician from Venice will hold young imaginations." Chicago Tribute
"Acknowledging the few facts we have about Antonio Vivaldi, Janice Shefelman makes us see not only the sickly little boy who became the famous composer but also the passionate power of music in this Venetian world. "
