I am looking for an illustrated book about music - history, instruments etc as a present for a 12 yr old. I have found a few on line but have no idea what they are like. Can anyone on here help? Usborne introduction to music - DK Childrens book of music (both maybe too young?) - Helen Bauer Young people's guide to classical music - Gareth Malones guide to classical music. I'm looking for a light read rather than a study book. Thanks.
