Prokofiev's classic tale, is retold here in verse with easy, yet faithful arrangements of the main musical themes. The verse makes it ideal for reading aloud, either as a story book or as a performance resource. Young children will enjoy having the book read to them and the music played, whilst older children will be able to read and play the pieces with relative ease and on a variety of suggested instruments.
I still think this is harder than other pieces rated a "2", with tricky rhythms, lots of accidentals, appoggiaturas, and ledger lines. It is a pretty book, but as a beginner I will not be using it. Anonymous
