The illustrations match the 'classic' nature of this piece of music/story. Much detail to look at while listening to the orchestra performing .

Disappointing Sept. 29 2005
By Jinian Star - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The "kinder, gentler" ending removes the dangerous aspect of the wolf. The wolf is intended to represent the evil in the world beyond the garden gate and Peter vanquishes it by being smarter and more agile. Both the threat and the victory are diminished when the wolf simply promises to do better in the future. Yuck.

Politically correct tripe.

Fantastic for both parents & children Sept. 22 2004
By Diana L. Sacrey - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A beautifully written & illustrated book with one of the best-loved classical music pieces ever composed.

I thought my son, at just 3 yrs old, would be a little too young to enjoy this yet. I got it for him anyway when I saw it, because I loved it myself as a child.

Never underestimate children or the power of music. My son wants to read/listen to Peter & the Wolf several times a day. He recognizes the French Horn as the wolf, the bassoon as the grandfather! It brings him such delight and provides a wonderful bonding time for us.

not what I hoped for Aug. 22 2006
By I love music - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Although this book has beautiful music and wonderful pictures, the retelling of the origional story is not very good. Many important elements of the story are changed. The wolf is released back into the wild because he says he is sorry and will try to change. I prefer the origional story and was not expecting changes such as this.

Excellent illustrations and narration. My Kids love it! Oct. 13 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Although I was mildly disapointed with the unnecessary kinder and gentler ending, the book and CD were an excellent choice for my 3 boys, ages 4,6, and 8. This is a good introduction to classical music. We read it alone as well as with the accompanying narrated CD. The illustrations are excellent.

Great easy teaching tool! Jan. 4 2007
By Sarah D. Burkart - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was a great way for my young students to get aquainted with many instrumentes of the orchestra. They loved the story, and the music made it come alive!!
