You know, I fall more in love with the cover of this Peter and the Wolf record every time I look at it.

It’s not only that the colours are pretty, but the illustrations match the characters to the instruments representing them, as it’s a record intended to introduce children to musical instruments – so cute!  (The B-side is The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, which I adore, mostly thanks to Moonrise Kingdom.)

Although I have to say – while the wolf slinking out from behind the French horns is very effective, I am not sure the artist was really trying when they just balanced the oboe across the duck’s back.

The pawing cat is my favourite, but then I have a clarinet and a cat.

    Beautiful illustration! I remember Peter and the Wolf well from my childhood. I’m glad it’s still relevant today!
