Meet the orchestra by Ann Hayes( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the features, sounds, and role of each musical instrument in the orchestra. Have you ever met an orchestra? Well, here's your chance! Meet the rabbit with her flute, the koala cellist, the tuba-playing warthog, the alligator on the drums. This unusual introduction to the orchestra describes the instrument-strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion- and offers interesting information about them. Playful illustrations show the animal musicians as they gather for an evening's performance. Then the conductor lowers his baton, and the wonderful music begins. "This lyrical romp through the orchestra begins with animal musicians slowly gathering for the evening performance. Poetic descriptions suggest the sounds of the instruments, and lively watercolor illustrations capture the playful essence of each musician and musical instrument. 'It's a smashing introduction to classical music, and a must prior to a first visit to the symphony.'"--Publishers Weekly
Charles Dickens : the man who had great expectations by Diane Stanley( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Dickens is one of the world's greatest and best loved writers. To read Great Expectations, A Christmas Carol, or Nicholas Nickleby is to be drawn into a society that still seems fresh and real today: nineteenth-century London with its extraordinary extremes of wealth, progress, poverty, and despair. Dickens captures it all in plots that are by turns wildly comical, wonderfully melodramatic, and tragic to the point of tears. In his writing and later, in his dramatic readings, Charles Dickens was a master showman, mesmerizing the whole world. His novels are stuffed to bursting with unforgettable characters like Mr. Micawber, Ebineezer Scrooge, and Little Nell. Most affecting are his portraits of children abused and abandoned by the Industrial Age. David Copperfield, Oliver Twist, and Tiny Tim are mirrors that reflect the twisted values of their time. The twists of Dickens's own life encompassed childhood suffering as well as international acclaim. When he was twelve, his father was consigned to debtors' prison and Charles to working in a blacking factory. Not twelve years later The Pickwick Papers would propel him toward literary stardom. In their lovingly researched, incisively written biography, illustrated with a lushness and attention to period detail of which Dickens would have approved, Diane Stanley and Peter Vennema illuminate his inspirations, his impact on nations of readers, and his gleaming genius that has only brightened with time
