For this being a 32 page book it held so much information. Imagine losing your hearing when you are such a renowned musician! I can relate to the frustration of hearing problems and how he ignored people because he had a hard time hearing them, as I suffer from hearing loss myself. So I know what other people think as me being rude or short is just me being embarrased because I couldn't follow the whole conversation.

As usual Mike Venezia adds a little humor to his historical bios - and my boys always remember the funny parts and ultimately facts about figures that they would not normally remember. Love this series.

Recommend for: Elementary Age.

Beautifully illustrated and photographed book about one of the World’s greatest composers. The story opened with a timeline of Beethoven’s life and a map of the World. A great read.

Mike Venezia is an amazing writer! He is able to write biographies with plenty of information yet still make them humorous. It was very interesting to learn about the life of Beethoven. I love Beethoven's symphonies but I never actually took the time to learn about his life. This book is amazing!
