What do you get when bestselling author Dan Brown dips his toes (and hooves) into the inspirational world of picture books? Well, a musical menagerie of bouncing kangaroos, clumsy kittens and an anxious ostrich! Written in verse, the whimsical Maestro Mouse guides you through the forest, savannah and ocean, all while sharing life lessons that resonate at every age. With original music composed by Dan via QR code, Wild Symphony is perfect read aloud or you can just listen and be swept away on the musical journey. Wild Symphony sits perfectly next to Shel Silverstein and Julia Donaldson.
The author will be donating all US royalties due to him to support music education for children worldwide, through the New Hampshire Charitable foundation.
Travel through the trees and across the seas with Maestro Mouse and his musical friends! Young readers will meet a big blue whale and speedy cheetahs, tiny beetles and graceful swans. Each has a special secret to share.
Along the way, you might spot the surprises Maestro Mouse has left for you- a hiding buzzy bee, jumbled letters that spell out clues, and even a coded message to solve!
Children and adults can enjoy this timeless picture book as a traditional read-along, or can choose to listen to original musical compositions as they readone for each animalwith a free interactive smartphone app, which uses augmented reality to play the appropriate song for each page when a phone's camera is held over it.
