Music is a universal language. You don't have to speak German, French, or Italian to appreciate Mozart's music.
Tarzana, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Beet Fizz LLC, is pleased to announce the release of “The Case of the Haunted Swamp,” the first in a series of musical adventure books for ages 8 and up that follows the unfolding mystery of Wolfgang Mozart's long lost “Perfect Symphony.” A sample of the first few chapters of the book can be found at http://www.notehunter.com. A video trailer for the book can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaoU_4tUqy0.
The adventure begins over two hundred years ago, when Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his Perfect Symphony. He used ink made from pure gold to create each and every note. So extraordinary were the golden notes that they jumped right off the pages of the manuscript and ran away, seeking fame, fortune and adventure across the globe.
Today, there’s only one detective in the world who can bring them back together. He’s a talented musician who can play any instrument. He’s a brilliant detective who can solve any mystery. And he’s only three-inches tall. A three-inch tall mouse to be exact – who goes by the name of T.W. Strouse.
"The Case of the Haunted Swamp" chronicles the search for Mozart's golden notes and is written by Hollywood veterans Cliff MacGillivray and Kelly Ward. The pair has written hundreds of scripts for Disney, Warner Bros., MGM, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Celebrated artist and writer Phil Mendez, whose book "The Black Snowman" has sold over 2 million copies, provided the lavish illustrations. Talented colorist Hunter Wolf digitally colored the art.
"We created, developed and produced Notehunter because we loved the idea of a three-inch hero, gifted with perfect pitch, who travels the world over, searching for the most amazing musical notes hidden within all different types of music," says MacGillivray.
"Music is a universal language," says Ward. "You don't have to speak German, French, or Italian to appreciate Mozart's music. That made it easy for Mozart's golden notes to scatter about the world and hide themselves in every kind of music on every continent."
"I was looking out the window of an airplane one day and all the people and the cars looked so small - like toys in a huge world," says Mendez. “Then it struck me how hard it would be for a mouse to travel that world. It has been lots of fun finding ways for him to get around on what is essentially the world's largest treasure hunt."
Released in both black-and-white and color versions as an eBook, “The Case of the Haunted Swamp” is available right now on Amazon and can be viewed on all Kindle products. With a free Kindle reading app, it can be yours to enjoy on every major smart phone, tablet and computer. Distribution through other eBook retailers is coming soon. And if you love the feel of real books, Limited Edition Hardcovers will be available later this year.
News, notes, character bios, creator bios, preview artwork and a sample of the first couple of chapters of the book can be found at http://www.notehunter.com.
