Description
 
A charming children’s book adapted from the opera “L’Enfant et les Sortileges” (1925) by composer Maurice Ravel, with a libretto by Colette. Some have compared this opera to Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are”; Sendak himself created the set deigns & costumes for a production of this opera. Having trouble with homework, Thomas takes out his frustration on the things around him -- his books, his clock, his furniture. But one day, Armchair bellows, ‘My stuffing has had enough!” & blows Thomas “clear out of this world into a strange place in time,” where numerals scatter, book characters come alive, & cakes fight back. Will Thomas ever return home? For ages 5-10. Designed to create an awareness of classical music among young children. Ill.
