KIRKUS REVIEW

The three stories: Glinka's ""Ruslan and Ludmulla"", Rimski-Korsakov's ""The Golden Cockerel"", and Prokofiev's ""The Love for Three Oranges"" are narrated in a acid style. Following each tale is a brief discussion of the music connected with the story, with emphasis on those parts which will appeal to children.
