Item Description...
"A distinctive yet traditional interpretation of the story that Prokofiev created to introduce children to the orchestra....[A] handsome edition of this classic story."--Booklist.

European comics artist Miguelanxo Prado describes his two life passions as "listening to and inventing stores, as well as painting." In this adaptation of the classic folk tale by Sergei Prokofiev, Prado combines these passions into a glorious work of art. The soft, shadowy colors give this redition of Peter and the Wolf the look of something from another time and place. The book begins with two full-page paintings. The first is Peter, the duck, the cat, and the bird staring into the dark woods; the point of view is from behind them, with the reader staring into the woods with them. Turn the page and you'll see the same scene from the opposite point of view, from within the woods, looking out at them. The depiction is powerfully stirring, and as Prado himself says in his introduction: "While folk tales are usually meant for children, they nonetheless possess a fascinating, evocative power for adults." Whether Peter and the Wolf is for you or your child, Prado's version is a great addition to your bookshelf.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
My grandchildren loved this  Jan 10, 2007
As a child, Peter and the Wolf was one of my favorite classical pieces ever. This is a beautiful book! I bought it for 2 of my grandchildren (8y & 2y) to go with a CD. It fits with the music very well, and my grandchildren loved it as much as I did. The cost was also very reasonable. Thanks for making this available.
Peter and the Wolf  Aug 14, 2006
Have not as yet received Peter and the Wolf Pop-up Book
Good intro to a classic story  Jul 6, 2006
I use this version of Peter and the Wolf when I teach music classes to young children. I also use a separate CD (a good one is narrated by Leonard Bernstein).The reason I like to use this edition for the younger kids is because in the end the duck actually comes out of the wolf alive, even though that's not the way it originally was written.
Peter and the Wolf connects!  Aug 17, 2005
A spectacular visual accompaniment to the music and narration! Beautiful pictures. My 2-year-old daughter asks for the music by name and sits down looking at the book while she listens to the instruments, pointing out the different animals/characters when she hears the different instruments appear. I never imagined she'd be learning words for "oboe" and "clarinet" at this point, never mind their sounds, but she is entranced and easily goes back and forth between the music, the story, and the different instruments and characters.
Cassette disappointing  Sep 2, 2003
The artist does a very good job of illustrating the story & keeping the flavour of the Russian lifestyle. I was very disappointed that the audio cassette is only a narration of the story, and does not contain a recording of the symphony.
