The Fabulous Feud of Gilbert and Sullivan by Jonah Winter

Winter, Jonah The Fabulous Feud of Gilbert and Sullivan, illustrated by Richard Egielski. Arthur A. Levine (Scholastic), 2009. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK. Sullivan is sick and tired of writing wonderful music for Gilbert’s very silly operas. When he takes a break, both men get the inspiration they need to rekindle their imaginations and create more enduring stage works together. While the illustrations are fun and grabbing and the text is witty and droll, this is mainly a specific use picture book – either as a resource for a unit on Gilbert and Sullivan or as a gift for a someone who is interested in the pair. EL – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher
