“Who better to introduce children to the depths of an orchestra but Lemony Snicket? The Composer is Dead is an entertaining murder mystery that gives each instrument a voice and more character than words can describe.”
— April Gosling, Horizon Books, Petoskey, MI

Description


There's dreadful news from the symphony hall—the composer is dead!

In this perplexing murder mystery from New York Times bestselling author Lemony Snicket, everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is a musical instrument. But the composer is still dead.

Perhaps you will be able to solve it yourself. Join the Inspector as he interrogates all the unusual suspects. Then listen to the accompanying audio recording featuring Lemony Snicket and the music of Nathaniel Stookey performed by the San Francisco Symphony. Hear for yourself exactly what took place on that fateful, well-orchestrated evening.
