Discover the spellbinding magic of Peter and the Wolf in this musical reimagining of one of Prokofiev’s most famous suites.

This story is about a young boy called Peter who lives with his grandfather, who warns him about being outside because a wolf roams the woods. However, when the wolf threatens his only animal friends—a duck, a bird and his grandfather's cat—Peter decides to ignore his grandfather's warning and save them. 
As you and your little one journey through the magical scenes, press the buttons on each page to activate the sounds! This encourages interactive learning and introduces children to this beautiful piece of 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.

The Story Orchestra series brings classical music to life for children through gorgeously illustrated retellings of classic ballet, opera and program music stories paired with 10-second sound clips of orchestras playing from their musical scores.

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.
