Summary

“Bright, colorful illustrations and short, catchy rhymes… in an accessible, knowledgeable format [that] is a solid success.” —School Library Journal
“From classical to pop, an exploration of ten Western musical genres…The child audience of readers, listeners, and players will find this a rich resource to explore.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Caldecott Honor winner and two-time New York Times best illustrator of the year author and illustrator Stephen T. Johnson’s lyrical journey of sounds, styles, and rhythms culminate in this highly imaginative and beautifully orchestrated celebration of music.

Experience ten different types of music—classical, Latin, jazz, country, heavy metal, hip-hop, rock and roll, rhythm and blues, electronica, pop, and a surprise finale. Unfolding through an inventive accordion form is a masterful concert of playfully crafted singsong text in harmony with delightfully whimsical art. On the reverse side is a rich, in-depth glossary for each genre, sure to be a wonderful resource for all ages.

Stephen T. Johnson is well known for his innovate children’s books and glorious public artwork and his dynamic performance in (with) Music is… will leave you wanting an encore!
