Product description

About the Author

M. T. Anderson is the author of the young adult novels THIRSTY and BURGER WUSS and a faculty member of Vermont College’s MFA Program in Writing for Children. About HANDEL, WHO KNEW WHAT HE LIKED, he says, "As a child, I loved Handel’s music, because it seemed to suggest that humans are a noble race, full of reason and gentility. Then I got to high school."

Kevin Hawkes is the illustrator of a number of popular books for
children, including WESLANDIA, THE LIBRARIAN WHO MEASURED THE EARTH, MARVEN OF THE GREAT NORTH WOODS, and PAINTING THE WIND: A STORY OF VINCENT VAN GOGH. He says, "I loved illustrating this book, though it was quite a challenge—Handel’s music is so beautiful and powerful, and his life was so complex. I hope I’ve done him justice."
