The Fabulous Feud Of Gilbert And Sullivan - Jonah Winter

In The Fabulous Feud Of Gilbert & Sullivan (Arthur A. Levine, $16.99), Jonah Winter depicts the famous muscians as less than harmonious collaborators. When Mr. Sullivan refuses to write the music for another one of Mr. Gilbert’s “ridiculous and repetitive operas,” Mr. Glibert writes something entirely different to lure Mr. Sullivan back into partnership. Hence, Mikado is born—an opera set in Japan. Beautiful illustrations by Richard Egielski perfectly set the stage. Ages 5-10.
