Gabriella's Song

Front Cover
Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 1997 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
Among the widening canals and streets of Venice, something wonderful is happening! There's a sweet song on everyone's lips--a song that began with a little girl named Gabriella.

It's a song that makes the baker laugh, brings the widow to tears, and causes the gondolier to swoon. And it's just the tune that inspires a certain struggling composer to begin his greatest symphony.

Watch as a whole city falls in love with Gabriella's song, in Candace Flemming's beautiful story about the power of music. Gieselle Potter's exquisite illustrations capture all the motions of a fine symphony and the warm, filtered light of a fascinating city.
