Synopsis

The Carnival of the Animals by Judith Chernaik

This magnificent project was inspired by Camille Saint-Saens' famous Carnival of the Animals , one of the most famous pieces of classical music written for children. Combining specially commissioned work by eleven acclaimed modern poets and riotous illustrations by Satoshi Kitamura, this package includes a CD featuring each of the poems read aloud to the corresponding animal music. Let the carnival begin!
