Horatio Mortimer loved music so much that he always looked for music in everything around him. He plucked a musical note from the wind in the trees and from the waves crashing onto the shore. He took it from the birds, from the poet's words, and from a baby's laughter. He caught the musical notes in the falling rain and got one from a big bullfrog. He got another from a barking dog and a whistling train but Horatio did not know how to convert those notes into music. He called his notes "The Song of the World". He took them to a music professor who told Horatio that he could make a song out of the notes in his paper bag. Would the music professor be able to do it? What did he do to Horatio's notes?

Horatio Mortimer Loved Music by Sharon A. Harmon is a whimsical story that will capture the hearts of all readers, especially music lovers. The story will also help readers understand that music is made from many notes strung together. Siiri Paton's illustrations are as magical as the story and add color and glamor to the book and the characters. It is an excellent gift for children this Christmas season and tutors can also use it in classrooms for read-aloud and storytelling sessions. The story will encourage children to search for music in anything and everything, just how Horatio Mortimer does in the story. Children will find Horatio Mortimer's adventures delightful and exciting.
