Fans of Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf will appreciate Vladimir Vagin's faithful retelling...
Ages 4-8. Vagin offers a crisp, appealing addition to the print retellings of this classic musical fairy tale, taken from the symphony by Sergei Prokofiev. In a mostly smooth, simple text, he follows the classic story closely, ending this time with the wolf in a zoo and the duck he swallowed safely back in Peter's arms. The art, too, is traditional. In his signature, representational style, Vagin places Peter and his grandfather in a typical Russian dacha surrounded by a lush forest.
