We just came back from the American Association of School Librarians conference in Hartford, CT where we were able to show off some of our favorite new titles to a very enthusiastic crowd.  Legends, Icons, and Rebels: Music That Changed The World was one of the books that got the most attention in the booth and we wanted to share it here too. This book is really too pretty to miss- just look at the inside pages…

 “Wow, just wow! This book is big in every way…. The book’s art is hard to resist … it’s a treat that the words grab as much as the pictures.” 
—Starred Review, Booklist

Part memoir, part tribute, and all great storytelling…
Music industry veterans Robbie Robertson, Jim Guerinot, Jared Levine, and Sebastian Robertson invite young readers to share with them in celebrating twenty-seven musical legends. Short profiles chronicle personal stories and achievements of extraordinarily talented artists whose innovations changed the landscape of music for generations to come. Carefully compiled like any great playlist, the line-up features originators, rebels, and risk-takers across diverse genres. From Ray Charles to Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry to Bob Dylan, Robertson shares anecdotes about these artists and about the influence they had on his own musical journey.
