Product Description
Brand
One day, two brothers discover a magical animal kingdom behind their bookcase. They are greeted by the royal lion with his shaggy mane; ask for directions from an old lonely tortoise; take a ride on some lumbering elephants; topple a skeleton of dinosaur bones, and swim among a school of shimmering fish. If only they could take them all home...

The book includes extracts from 'The Swan', 'Aquarium', 'Fossils', and 'Finale' (From Disney's Fantasia) along with a totally new story to link the pieces together.

As you and your little one journey through the magical scenes, you will press the buttons to hear 10 excerpts from the suite’s music. At the back of the book, find a short biography of the composer, Camille Saint-Saëns, with details about his composition of Carnival of the Animals. Next to this, you can replay the musical excerpts and, for each of them, read a discussion of the instruments, rhythms and musical techniques that make them so powerful. A glossary defines musical terms.

We. Are. Obsessed!

I bought the The Orchestra Swan Lake book for my little ballerina loving girl and a Swan Lake Maileg mouse and she LOVES them! We are first timers and we love the quality of the mouse and how adorably well made it is! I am buying more for her birthday!!

Great book

This book is so lovely. I bought it for my three year old and both my three year old and one year old girls love it. The buttons are hard to push for a child but ok for an adult. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is on the shorter side (a plus for our girls ages) but is told very well. Very happy with it!
