All the artwork was handmade in Brooklyn by a dedicated team of artists and craftspeople. Over 18 months of designing and building using cardboard, paint and magic markers (among other materials!) went into creating our miniature world of Hollywood. Then everything was photographed and animated to create every frame of video in the moviebook.

Hear an original recording of important, must-listen classical music by one of the world’s most acclaimed youth philharmonic orchestras: the National Youth Orchestra of Germany, conducted by Alexander Shelley. Composers featured include: Prokofiev, Wagner, Schumann, Mahler, Puccini, Smetana, Elgar, Mussorgsky, Grieg, Dukas, Satie, and Zemlinsky.

Learn to understand the relationship between music and storytelling. In the app, each musical excerpt can be triggered by a swipe, allowing the child to develop a sense of musical pacing.

For teachers who wish to develop lessons based on the app, we recommend downloading our Study Guide (in PDF format), directly from the official website

Rock icon Alice Cooper adds his inimitable energy and appeal to this story. Mr. Cooper is a family-man and grandfather in real life and splendidly guides you through the story.

Set in modern-day Los Angeles, Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood begins with the wolf’s escape from the local zoo. To capture the wolf, Peter must build a robot, maneuver his way through a thrilling helicopter chase, and manage some hilarious encounters with several adorably quirky animals. Will he be able to complete the mission? Find out how Prokofiev's children classic follows after a thrilling prequel.
