Introduce little ones to the magic of classical music with this reimagining of one of legendary composer Prokofiev's most famous suites.

Peter and the Wolf is a story about a young boy called Peter who lives with his grandfather. His grandfather warns him about being outside because a wolf roams the woods. However, when the wolf threatens Peter's animal friends - a duck, a bird and his grandfather's cat - he decides to ignore his grandfather's warning and save them. As you and your child journey through the magical scenes, read the story text in each circle aloud and press the buttons on each page to activate the sounds! This encourages interactive learning via an immersive experience. The soothing natural scenes are illustrated impeccably, with sweeping greenery and orange, summery landscapes spreads across each page. 

Follow the adventurous Peter as he explores the woods for the first time. And this lovely book tells a sweet story while also introducing kids to the power and beauty of classical music. At the back of the book, find a short biography of the composer, Sergei Prokofiev, with details about his composition of Peter and the Wolf. 

Next to this, you can replay the musical excerpts and, for each of them, read a discussion of the instruments, rhythms and musical techniques that make them so powerful. A glossary defines musical terms.

Also available in the Story Orchestra series: Four Seasons in One Day, The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Carnival of the Animals, The Magic Flute, In the Hall of the Mountain King, I Can Play (vol 1) and The Planets.
