Edward M. Haberdasher has crafted very peculiar earmuffs for his very particular daughter Cecilia Maria.

Don’t shout about it but Cecilia Maria thinks they make her look fascinating and has whispered her thanks.

They Called Her Vivaldi is an upbeat comedy-adventure about a sensitive musical prodigy making a quiet name for herself in a cacophonous world.

As our young heroine journeys over cobblestones and canals, she learns about love, loss, the place of salt in our diet and the courage to lose your footing without losing your way.

For children 7+ and adults of all ages.
