Editorial Reviews


"When I saw the age group for this book, 7-12 years old, I sat down with both of my daughters, and we read it together.  They loved it.  I loved, it.  It teaches young kids why they should never, ever, give up.  This is a must read for the entire family." -- The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television.

"Molly draws on her inner strength--and years of practice--to play the concert of her young life." -- Strings Magazine.

"I enjoyed it very much and so did my 7-year-old granddaughter." -- Musical Opinion, Britain's oldest classical music magazine.

"A complete delight...beautifully told...lessons to be learned.  Full-page color illustrations are enchanting." -- Stringendo, Australian Strings Association.

"Fourth grade students found the book so appealing, they decided to ask [the author] to visit the school." -- Crescendo newsletter, The Music Educators Association, Winter, 2005

"Highly recommended." -- Crescendo newspaper, Toronto Musician's Association, Winter 2006 Crescendo newspaper, Toronto Musician's Association

"[Molly] proves her courage in a society still dismissive of female talent." -- Symphony magazine, September 2004 Symphony magazine, September 2004

From the Publisher

Molly's story is simply told but filled with subtleties that children will appreciate on different levels as they grow (from ages 7-12), helped along by 14 dramatic full-page illustrations. One example is the way a music teacher who doesn't accept girl students (the story takes place in the 19th century) becomes Molly's advocate.

Parents (and teachers) will appreciate one point in particular: There's no magic wand, rather it's "practice" that enables Molly to perfect her skill. But the book does highlight the magic of music.

Format: Hardcover
"Molly and the Sword" is a wonderful children's book. I bought it for my ten-year old niece, Anna, who lives in California. She read it and loved it, especially, she said, since she is now studying the violin. hearing that, I have mailed a copy to her violin teacher.
While this book is written for young people, it should be required reading for anyone who deals with children of this age, as it conveys many of life's valuable lessons told in a delightful and straight-forward manner. I was in tears at the end of it.

I bought this for my 8-year-old granddaughter, who plays the violin. The story is charming, and the illustrations are beautiful. It helps that the main character looks a lot like our granddaughter!
