The Secret Mountain
JUVENILE FICTION / Performing Arts / Music

Travel through time following a charming little mouse called Minim who loves cheese and music. One day, he witnesses the arrival of a dapper, young Mozart and his family as they set foot on a dock one late, cold night. He is no ordinary boy, sporting a white wig and dressed in red velvet, on his way to playing several concerts in the city. To the surprise of all, he begins to play with his sister for the tired customs officer and gloomy dockworkers. The evening air comes to life, and soon, everyone’s faces are beaming, their ears ringing with music!

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 performance of the composition A Little Night Music (“Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”).

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

"That's My Piano, Sir!: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a thoroughly charming and unreservedly recommended addition to family, elementary school, and community library music themed picture books for young readers ages 7-9." —Midwest Book Review

"Seems to me that if you’re going to make a video out of a picture book that relies heavily on music, you need to put your back into it. Give it all you’ve got. Some gusto! Some pizzazz! And in the case of today’s video premiere, make it feel like it comes from one of my favorite childhood shows, Reading Rainbow. Why did I invoke Reading Rainbow earlier? Because this particular video reminds me of when that show would mildly animate picture books and get a celebrity to do the narration. Case in point, this is narrated by Colm Feore, which may not excite anyone but my Stratford Festival-loving family (on non-COVID years we are always trekking out to Ontario) where we have seen him perform multiple times. And now, for your viewing pleasure, That’s My Piano, Sir!" —School Library Journal

"I loved listening to the pieces chosen for this book." —Marysa, A Nation of Moms
