The Secret Mountain
JUVENILE FICTION / Performing Arts / Music

Travel through time following a charming little mouse called Minim, who happens to love cheese and music. With great courage, he braves a cold Venetian winter night to visit an orphanage. His mission is to replace the tooth fairy by leaving a little gift under the pillow of each child. Little does he know that this task is fraught with danger. A tomcat is lurking about in the building, always on the lookout for his next meal. Luckily, it’s also home to the great composer Antonio Vivaldi, whose music will prove irresistible!

In addition to an illustrated story and introductory notes on the composer, this book is accompanied by a CD featuring recordings of the narrated story and the performances of the composition Concerto for Winter from The Four Seasons.

Unique code for digital download of the recordings is also included.
