Peter’s Grandfather warns him not to go into the forest, and when Peter doesn’t listen and goes anyways, he gets caught. While in the forest, Peter looks over a wall and sees a wolf that is eating a duck and chasing a bird and cat. The bird and Peter work together and capture the wolf in the end. ( )

Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf is reworked visually and narratively by Chris Raschka. The book makes a good read-aloud with many parts, fun repetition and interesting word sequences. Children will especially enjoy the 3-dimensional miniatures that Raschka created. ( )

This retelling of the musical story of Peter and the Wolf is hard to get into at first. The language feels stilted and the attempt to capture the musical beat doesn't work for me. However, my daughter loved it when I read it aloud - so maybe it sounds funnier than I thought.

This is a story about good triumphing over evil. A little boy goes out on an adventure and eventually captures the big bad wolf and the whole village celebrates. This is a great story for younger children.
