Product Description:

Ludwig van Beethoven was a wonderful piano player - maybe the best in Europe. However, Beethoven has a horrible secret - he is losing his hearing! In despair, Beethoven is ready to give up when a wonderful melody comes to him, inspiring him to become a composer. With the steady friendship of a fellow musician, Ferdinand, Beethoven strives to find inspiration. Eventually, his inspiration comes from the accomplishments of Napoleon Bonaparte, who has rid France of an unjust king and is known as a "man of the people." Beethoven begins his symphony, weaving his own tale into the music of struggle, courage, sorrow, hope, and liberty composed to honor Napoleon. However, just as Beethoven finishes his symphony, he learns of the betrayal of Napoleon, who has crowned himself King of France. The book no longer comes with a CD, but featured pieces of music are linked on the publisher's site. hc. - Melissa

Category Description for Once Upon a Masterpiece:

It looks like a gel crayon, but it's actually solid tempera paint in a stick! Is it drawing or painting? Either way, it goes on paper smoothly, dries in just 90 seconds so when you touch it, it doesn't smudge or come off. The colors are bold with lots of pigment and you can use them on paper, poster paper, cardboard, canvas and even wood. Perfect for those times when you don't want to mess with getting out liquid tempera paint, water, brushes, etc. These are keepers! Offered in vibrant rainbow colors, super bright neons and shiny bold metallics. And remember, these are paints so keep them capped when not in use. Non-toxic. ~ Emily
