The Hobbit and the Gruffalo

November 28, 2012 § Leave a comment

At Kaimes school we’ve been putting music to the goblin songs from The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien and also working on an interactive musical version of The Gruffalos child by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffer. There’s a real universal love for both of these books. I have really caught the musical book bug since my work with Geraldine and Hannah and the kids in Greenock. There is so much inspiration to be drawn from an incredible global wealth of childrens literature. A book can help us appreciate music creation and music can help us appreciate books.
