The Magic Flute by Anne Gatti


The Magic Flute by Anne Gatti

Enter a magical world of monster serpents, mysterious ladies, and flying machines where giant flowers and butterflies the size of birds abound. It is here amid a lush wood and within a dark labyrinthine castle that an unforgetable cast of characters gathers and a magical story of good versus evil unfolds. Illustrated with the glorious paintings of Peter Malone, this enchanting retelling of Mozart's famous opera is sure to delight all ages.


A beautiful treat for the eyes...and the imagination.
