Strange Mr. SatieStrange Mr. Satie: 10/27/07

Strange Mr. Satie is a biography aimed at elementary school aged readers. It covers the life, career and death of the very unconventional composer Erik Satie (1866 - 1925).

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.
