Reviews

★ "Onomatopoeic lines create a sense of Cage's unconventional music...and underscore his determination to explore sound despite criticism."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ "Readers will likely be curious to experiment themselves and 'be like John Cage..." --The Horn Book, starred review
