Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this enchanting story based on the famous opera LEnfant et les Sortileges (The Child and the Spell), stunning illustrations and playful language will captivate young children while also introducing them to classical music. When Thomas math problems give him trouble, he lets out a wild tantrum, ripping apart his favorite book, knocking over his clock, and overturning his tea and cake. But when he plops down into his favorite armchair, the chair decides it has had enough of the boys bad behavior. It blows Thomas into a strange place in time where Thomas comes face-to-face with the very objects he just broke.

Synopsis:

"Based on the opera L'enfant et les sortileges by Maurice Ravel, libretto by Colette."

About the Author

Maurice Ravel was one of the most original and sophisticated composers of the early 20th century. He wrote several operas, including LEnfant et les Sortileges (The Child and the Spell), as well as ballets, and orchestral and chamber music. Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette collaborated with Ravel on LEnfant et les Sortileges and wrote the libretto for it. Pegi Deitz Shea is the award-winning author of The Carpet Boys Gift, Liberty Rising, Patience Wright, Tangled Threads, Ten Mice for Tet, and The Whispering Cloth. She lives in Rockville, Connecticut. Serena Riglietti has illustrated more than 50 childrens books, including the Italian editions of the Harry Potter series.
