From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Mozart died 200 years ago at 35 years of age and, not surprisingly, the world of publishing has taken note. Wolferl is the third recent picture book about Mozart to appear, and it covers his early childhood. Weil's pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings are as light and airy as Mozart's early music, and her cartoon style is stronger and more successful here than in some of her recent books. The brief text is anecdotal and appealing. Children read about Wolferl standing up on tip-toes to push the organ pedals, climbing into the lap of the empress Maria Theresa to give her a kiss, and playing hide-and-seek with Marie Antoinette. Although not as distinguished as Brighton's Mozart: Scenes from the Childhood of the Great Composer (Doubleday, 1990) or Downing's Mozart Tonight (Bradbury, 1991), Wolferl has great style of its own. Wherever possible , libraries will want to own all three. --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, NY

From Publishers Weekly:

Of all of history's most famous musicians and composers, none had a more intriguing childhood than Mozart. Budding musician or no, who can resist hearing about the boy who played piano flawlessly by ear at age three, began composing at four and had to stand on tiptoe to reach the pedals on the church organ? Weil's use of Mozart's childhood nickname, Wolferl, instantly puts this celebrated figure on an intimate basis with her audience and sets the tone for this thoroughly accessible account. The text is peppered with the author's sprightly line drawings, enhancing the book's readability and making it a good candidate for a solo outing by older children. Ages 4-8.
