The Sound of Music is a classic. It's timeless. So when Laurence Maslon came out with a book companion to the musical, WITH a forward from Julie Andrews herself, I broke into song immediately. And there's more.
The abundance of photographs are what make The Sound of Music Companion a fan favorite and an excellent coffee-table book, but it's the research that must have went into all the of the facts, both musical and the story behind the Trapp Family Singers, that I was most impressed with.
