Peter And The Wolf - Book - Retold By Chris Raschka
The Symphonic Children's Classic Retold by Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka
Sergei Prokofiev composed his Peter And The Wolf in 1936 with the hope of introducing children to the instruments of the orchestra. It happens that he also devised a wonderfully dramatic story. The characters - boy, bird, duck, cat, grandfather, wolf, hunters - and their doings have been beloved by young and old for decades.
Writer, artist, musician, and Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka has given the original story a new setting: a stage performance. Here you will relish language inspired by music; enjoy mischief, suspense, and triumph in the theater; and delight in a surprise (and an additional character) Prokofiev's merry tale didn't provide. Be sure you don't turn immediately to the last page!
