About the book

The award-winning Brazilian author Ana Maria Machado, winner of countless national and international prizes, including a selection for the White Ravens Catalogue, reappears in our catalogue with a jewel in the form of a book.  Remember that book that captivates us, when it addresses a delicate issue in a sensitive and surprising way? The Boy and the Maestro is aexciting story of the friendship between a boy who lives in a low-income community in the city of Rio de Janeiro, and a conductor who, when he recognizes the boy´s talent, starts encouraging him to develop his musical gift.   
Themes such as child labor, a child´s abandonment by his father, the discovery of individual talents and basic musical concepts are all treated with great care in the text and portrayed with an incredible mix of colors and perspective in Vinicius Sabato´s illustrations.
