Symphony City

In Symphony Citya young girl gets lost in the subway and street music shows her the Symphony_Citypath back home. Spare text coupled with Amy Martin‘s bold lines and contrasting colour scheme make this picture book a visual treat. Also, find the nineteen cats included in the illustrations.

Compare and contrast this book to Ben’s Trumpet or The Conductor. All three books show music visually, and the power it has in a variety of situations. Symphony City includes the flute, accordian, keyboard, drums, French horn, clarinet and more.
