          What a fantastic book! I'm always looking for interesting teaching material. This has all sorts of different styles from all over the world (they missed a trick by not including a map). The piano accompaniments are PDF on the CD but there are also accompanying flute parts, making the book into a duet book too. The CD is good quality and the pieces fun but challenging. A slightly easier alternative to the similar Mike Mower's Postcards.
