Part Little Golden Book, part nightmare, this storybook features the disturbing adventures of a playful pachyderm-like creature. An enclosed CD contains a soundtrack by Bill Frisell for listening to while reading the book!Frank creator Jim Woodring and legendary jazz guitarist/Nonesuch recording artist Bill Frisell have collaborated to create this unique multimedia storybook for the ages. Reminiscent of a Little Golden Book, this full-color hardcover contains a delightful story made all the more special with the inclusion of a CD created and recorded by Frisell especially for this book and inspired directly by Woodring's story.
With one full-color painting per page, and no words, Woodring has crafted a simple narrative of innocence and fear that will inspire multiple re-readings by children and adults for years to come. Trosper, the playful little pachyderm-like creature, wants nothing to do but play with his ball. But there are menacing forces that have other ideas for him! You will surely lose yourself in Woodring's masterfully created world of innocence and fear.
The accompanying CD comes packaged inside the book in a custom pocket. Frisell's ambient and ethereal jazz soundtrack creates a remarkable aural tension that perfectly accompanies Trosper's fright-filled adventure as well as Woodring's eye-poppingly vibrant and colorful landscapes.
