Naxos presents a thoroughly entertaining musical app for children based on Camille Saint-Saëns’s ever-popular ‘Carnival of the Animals’.

Enhanced with animation and brand new rhyming verses, the carnival has never been so alive! Tap the pictures – they’re full of surprises…

Is the Elephant happy with his trunk? Do Kangaroos like school? What about the poor old tortoise – does he ever get out and have fun?

With Naxos’s excellent recording of the music and delightful, animated illustrations of all Saint-Saëns’s ‘animals’, this app will charm those of all ages!

“Prowling and proud,
Right at the front,
Is a fine feline
With a nose for the hunt…”

- Naxos’s complete orchestral recording of ‘The Carnival of the Animals’.
- Colourful, original illustrations, animated throughout.
- Brand new verses written for each track – a new dimension to the pieces.
- Text displayed and narrated with the music.
- Audio options: music and speech, music only, speech only, or just the sound-effects.
- Find out about the composer, Saint-Saëns.

No Sound

Agree with the last review. I thought that in 6 years the sound kink would have been worked out, which kind of defeats the purpose. I downloaded the app specifically for the music to accompany the book I have. Thought this would work like the other NAXOS book app, My First Classical music - that one was well used and loved. Hoping just as the previous review stated, that I can get a refund.

Cute app, but the audio does not work, which rather defeats its purpose. I hope I can get a refund.
