This week’s Free Book Friday giveaway is Scarlatti’s Cat, a story of a very talented pet.
Domenico Scarlatti, the great Italian composer, enjoys his cat’s company when he plays harpsichord. Little does he know, his cat, Pulcinella also dreams of composing her own music! One day, while chasing a mouse, she tumbles onto the harpsichord. Suddenly, she can’t resist the urge to play. When she begin to play, Scarlatti’s eyes widen…
A popular rumor that Scarlatti composed his Sonata in C Minor, known as “The Cat’s Fugue,” after hearing his cat Pulcinella walk up and down the keyboard inspired this charming picture book written by Nathaniel Lachenmeyer and illustrated by Carlyn Beccia.
