The animals are having a carnival, and the guests are arriving. There's the majestic lion, the braying mules, the dancing elephant, and the bouncy kangaroos. Even the fossils join in with a fast and rattly dance. Everyone is invited!

Nearly 150 years ago, the composer Camille Saint-Sa#65533;ns was asked by his pupils to write a musical joke for them. He wrote the Carnival of the Animals , a piece people enjoyed so much that it has now become one of Saint-Sa#65533;ns's most famous works.

This accessible commentary, in a picture-book format, helps children follow each section of Saint-Sa#65533;ns's classic piece while they listen to the CD. Whimsical illustrations, a simple text, and evocative melodies create an ideal introduction for young children to the world of classical music.
