Why we chose “Wild Symphony”

A few months ago, we introduced you to a musical picture book from our Librio Library and this month, once again we’re diving deep into the world of music. 

Please welcome to the stage, “Wild Symphony” by Dan Brown and Susan Batori.

Wild Symphony Front cover

The story is led by Maestro Mouse who guides the reader through the book, introducing them to a vast variety of creatures along the way. The book can be read just as a normal book, or the reader can choose to listen to original musical compositions as they read using an interactive smartphone app which allows them to  instantly play the appropriate song for each page and each respective animal. But that’s not all, there are  jumbled letters spelling out clues, and even a coded message to solve!

Favorite image

By using the app, the corresponding song sounds as soon as a phone is held over the picture book’s page. The songs, composed by Dan Brown were recorded by the Zagreb Festival Orchestra.

Singing frogs

You can listen to the song connected to our favorite image  in the following video.

Adults will like

The picture book “Wild Symphony” has a lot to offer: pictures, puzzles, music, short poems and words of wisdom. It’s quite a lot to take in, perhaps even a little too much, but that’s for each individual reader to decide.
