The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra published a children’s book about classical music written by KSO cellist Stacy Nickell Miller. Entitled Better Than Cookies, As Good As Cake, the book tells the story of a young girl who receives a violin. She finds that the sound that her violin makes, both alone and as part of a string quartet, is better than cookies and as good as cake. The characters in the book, illustrated by Stephen Brown, are loosely based on members of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.

This book is available for purchase at

Special thank you to Sam Furrow and Jim and Kay Clayton for making this project possible.
