Publisher Summary

Classical music comes to life like never before in this magical journey through 11 beloved classical pieces. Meet Allegro, an ordinary boy who can’t stand practicing the piano. Those black dots on the page drive him crazy—until the music itself whisks him away on a breathtaking journey. Each beautifully illustrated scene on Allegro’s journey is accompanied by a famous classical theme that can be played with the press of a button. Hear Grieg’s “Morning Mood” while meandering through a misty meadow, Dvorak’s “New World Symphony” while exploring uncharted lands, Debussy’s “Claire de Lune” while pondering a shimmering night sky, and 8 more! Beautiful gold foil, lavish illustrations, and high-quality sound make this a musical masterpiece to treasure forever.

Who Wrote Allegro: A Musical Journey Through 11 Musical Masterpieces

author
David Miles

David grew up in rural Pennsylvania. He attended Brigham Young University where he pursued a degree in Business Management. But through all the classes on cash flows and price elasticities, David was still in love with art. He worked several years as a graphic designer and published his first children's book at age 19. David also took two years off school to serve a church mission to Thailand, which was probably the most formative experience of his life. David graduated in business from BYU in 2013 and joined Familius as a partner. He works as Creative Director and also oversees all digital initiatives for the company. He lives in California with his wife and son.

Anita Barghigiani

I was born near Pisa on September 24th 1987. After graduating at the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence, I took part in many festivals as a scenographer and photographer. In 2010 I attended the Bologna Children’s Book Fair for the first time and fell in love with children's books! I decided to study Illustration and Entertainment Design at NEMO Academy of Digital Arts. Since then,I have worked as an illustrator for publishers and as a painter and decorator for Dolce & Gabbana. I currently live in Florence where I work, play the guitar and actively help animals as a volunteer.
