Generations of children have been charmed by this enchanting work, and Brilliance Audio is proud to introduce its own version with multi-Grammy Award-winner Jim Dale as narrator. To delight the millions of Jim's fans, his reading of Peter and the Wolf will include unforgettable vocal characterizations of the various animals, young Peter, and Peter's grumpy old grandfather.

Children and their parents will enjoy listening to this unique musical story as every character is portrayed by a different instrument from the orchestra and the story is woven together by the lively narration by Jim Dale.

    " I actually have this on CD and forgot so listened to it today. I could listen to it over and over. Its been my favourite since I was little. I love the Disney film of it "

    " This retelling is a bit flat and the pictures don't capture the drama and tension of the events. Still, it could be helpful with the "Peter and the Wolf" music playing in the background. "

    " My students ADORE this book, and this version in particular. Beautiful illustrations, nice big print and a sweet introduction of all the members of the orchestra in the preface. A perennial favorite for us- this book is literally falling apart from so much love! "

    " My preschooler enjoyed this retelling. Each character is introduced on their own page, with the facing page framed like a stage and illustrating the action when that character enters the play. The nonsense words and repetition are great for preschoolers. Mine enjoyed it at least. But then, she's obsessed with wolves! "
