In this delightful full-color songbook, Prokofieff's classic musical tale is retold in verse with easy, yet faithful arrangements of the main musical themes - each of which represents a character in the story. The verse makes it ideal either for reading aloud, or as a performance source: beginners will be able to play some of the music, and intermediate pianists will be able to play it all with relative ease. Includes nine easy piano pieces, and illustrations by Peter Bailey.
