Peter and David
Last night G and I watched Suzie Templeton's stop-animation version of Peter and the Wolf and were quite enchanted. The puppets were so beautifully evocative it was impossible not to become emotionally attached. Especially to the duck who I instantly fell in love with and am still traumatized by what happened. (G is too.) In spite of that terrible tragedy however, I do recommend experiencing this little film.
And although I haven't listened to the 1978 David Bowie narration of the same story, I'm going to recommend it anyway. How in the world could it not be fantastic?
