ALBOROZO, Gabriel Let’s Play Allen & Unwin, 2014 unpaged $22.99 ISBN 9781743316283 SCIS 1666214
Can you imagine a world where the instruments of the orchestra create beautiful colours and shapes? Gabriel Alborozo can. Through his whimsical, engaging drawings Alborozo introduces each instrument, capturing some of the beauty of sound through the stroke of a brush and the curl of a line. Maybe you will hear the rumblings of the tuba or the majesty of the grand piano as you turn each page but whatever the experience it is a book that celebrates sound through a kaleidoscope of colour. The illustration takes centre stage in this lovely introduction to music for the very young. Highly recommended. 2+.
