Comments for Strange Mr. Satie
In 40 pages, M. T. Anderson's straightforward text and Petra Mathers's whimsical illustrations paint the the life of Strange Mr. Satie. The narrative I found a little dry but I thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations.
I think younger readers will find the simple vocabulary very approachable. Whatever they don't understand they'll get from the illustrations. I was certainly entertained and educated enough to want to seek out more information on Erik Satie.
