The Maestro Plays Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The Maestro plays. He plays proudly. He plays loudly. He plays slowly. He plays oh-ly."

Bravo to the three maestros who created this virtuoso picture book!

There is Maestro Bill Martin, who writes cunningly, punningly, winningly, grinnnigly, unsinningly.

There is Maestro Vladimir Radunsky, who illstrates smartly, artily, grandly (never blandly).

And there is the Maestro of the story himself, who amuses wryly, informs on-the-slyly, and encourages children to see how masterfully they can play with words.

Synopsis:

First published as part of a school reading program in 1971, this newly illustrated edition of The Maestro Plays now takes its place next to Bill Martin's Knots on a Counting Rope and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? as a staple of preschool literature.
