Tory, the Time Traveler An Adventure with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
(PublishAmerica, Dec. 14, 2010)
Tory, who is ten and doesn’t like to read, finds that when opening a book he is in a whole new world. He and his young sister, Andrea, enter the music room of Mozart, who is eight years old. Tory and Andrea are invisible to all the adults, which makes life interesting. While visiting with “Wolfie,” Tory learns how to read music and play a tune on the harpsichord, and in turn he helps Wolfie with his math. Nannerl, Wolfie’s older sister, teaches the children how to dance the minuet. They all go to the palace of the Emperor, where Wolfie plays both the harpsichord and violin for the royalty. Andrea gets lost in the palace and they wander through many magnificent rooms until they find her. They return home by closing the book. During lunch they listen to music composed by young Mozart.
