About This BookJohann Sebastian Bach lost both of his parents at an early age and changed jobs frequently. He married twice and had seventeen children. Between working and his family, though, he wrote some of the best-loved music in the world.
The author/illustrator of the highly successful "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series lends his creative talents to another fun, informative series, this one featuring world-famous composers. Venezia's clever mix of historical photos, his own tongue-in-cheek cartoon illustrations, and factual biographical text combine to present the composers as they really were.
