To everyone who has heard of my famous younger brother but has never heard of me.

I Am Mozart, Too is a picture book biography about Wolfgang's older sister, Maria Anna Mozart, who was a child prodigy and a secret composer, perfect for Women's History Month.

Nannerl and Wolfie love playing the harpsichord together. They are so talented, the Mozart siblings perform all over Europe for packed audiences in beautiful concert halls. Even Empress Maria Theresa requests that they stop in Vienna to play especially for her.

But then Nannerl does something naughty: She starts writing music of her own. Papa fumes. Girls are not allowed to compose! Girls belong behind the curtain.

While Wolfie’s solo career takes flight, Nannerl must settle for a life offstage. But it doesn’t stop her from pursuing her dreams in secret.

With vivid, sweeping art by Adelina Lirius, author Audrey Ades tells the powerful true story of a talented, ambitious girl who has been hidden from history—a girl who was and always will be a genius, too.

Audrey Ades grew up in New England and holds degrees in theater and psychology. She is the author of Judah Touro Didn't Want to Be Famous and The Reverend and the Rabbi. She lives in South Florida with her husband, son, and persnickety Pomeranian, Cookie.

Adelina Lirius is an illustrator based in Stockholm, Sweden. She loves painting imaginary scenes, portraying nature, and depicting the diffferent cultures she grew up with. Adelina is the illustrator of a picture book adaptation of The Secret Garden and The Fort.
