Marvin Makes Music
TITLE: Marvin Makes Music
AUTHOR: Marvin Hamlisch
ILLUSTRATOR: Jim Madsen
PUBLISHER: Dial Books for Young Readers
Marvin loves to play the piano but he does not like playing pieces by funny named composers like Wolfgang or Ludwig. He has an audition for the Julliard School. On the day of the audition, he and his Dad explore on the roof of the building while they are waiting. They get locked out. Will Marvin make it to his audition in time? Will his nerves keep him from performing to the best of his ability?
This is a true life story of composer Marvin Hamlisch.
I thought this was an interesting story and the illustrations make the book come alive. The book is AR level 3.6.
