Title: The Magic Violin
Author: Mayra Calvani
Illustrator: K. C. Snider
Publisher: Guardian Angel Publishing, Inc.
Genre: Fiction / Children
The book is about a 8 year old girl Melina and how she regains her confidence that she can indeed learn the violin through some stratagems of her wonderful teacher Andrea.
When Melina starts losing her self-confidence, Andrea disguises herself as an old woman and tells Melina that her violin will become magical. And the child trusts the old woman and regains her confidence, which is of course the real magic.
The story of course only hints at this stratagem of Andrea and thus the children who read will really enjoy the old woman and the midnight magic so beautifully described in the short but sweet story.
The book is printed well, edited well and the illustrations are very appealing.
All in all, an excellent book for gifting to a child in this festive season.
