    One thought on “A Nut at the Opera”

    1. A quick read - but a book to enjoy. The artwork is the meat but the short descriptions/tales are fun. Wish there were more. The names for the opera 'stars' are fun as well.

    2. I was under the mistaken impression that this was a graphic novel. It is more an art book. That is the only reason I've given this a 2 star rating.
