Frederico the Mouse Violinist is a fascinating picture book about a mouse and a dream. Living in the workshop of the famed violin designer Antonio Stradivari, Frederico watches the talented designer craft spectacular violins. Wanting to learn more, at night he explored and learned to play the instruments. Little did he know, someone was watching and would surprise him with a special gift.
This was a heartwarming picture book to be enjoyed again and again. I like how the educational components tied in with the story, yet didn’t take away from it.
Illustrator K.C. Snider has done it again with colorful, engaging and realistic illustrations.
