Lemony Snicket Picture Book

For all of you Lemony Snicket fans.....Daniel Handler (a.k.a. Lemony Snicket) has collaborated with composer Nathaniel Stookey to create a classical music mystery picture book! The Composer Is Dead comes with a CD of the author as narrator and the San Francisco Symphony performing Stookey's music.

Finding a dead composer, a detective questions all the usual suspects--sections of the orchestra, from the violins to percussion. The detective cites many dead composers, such as Bach, Beethoven and Schubert, while trying to solve the mystery. The Composer Is Dead was first performed in San Francisco in 2006, and the collaborators will perform on March 7th at New York's Carnegie Hall.

The book is published by HarperCollins and retails for $17.99. It's worth a look and a listen!
