While music is part of the background of some audiobooks--or used to signal transition points--not until now has music come to life, leapt off the page, been given its due in an audiobook. MYSTERIOUS THELONIOUS is an experiential work, not simply afforded added dimension by the recording, but literally brought to life. Hearing Monk's "Misterioso" is essential to this rich experience. Raschka himself adds wonderful commentary that offers children a window into his process in creating this book by representing the music in line, color, and words. His introduction to Richard Allen's musical reading is certain to enhance the listening experience. T.B. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
