Pet at the Met by Lydia Freeman

Pet at the Met
by Lydia Freeman

Maestro Petrini, the tiny page-turner for the Prompter at the Metropolitan Opera House, has always evaded Mefisto the cat until the day Petrini gets carried away by Mozart's Magic Flute and joins the performers onstage. 

I loved this delightful children's book. I didn't want it to end... Just how does it end.... Does Maestro Petrini and Mefisto become friends at the end or are they sworn enemies... You will have to read this lovely colorful book for the answer!
This gorgeous book would be a wonderful addition to any home, school, and public library.... If you are an opera fan.. This is a must read!

Happy reading......

Until the next time!

A children's book a day, keeps the scary monster away!
