"more than 20 recital pieces for young players, all marked by ingenuity and appeal"

(Piano Magazine, 2003)

"Christopher Norton again gives pianists the opportunity to enjoy some well-known tunes in his own inimitable style.... A playalong CD is included, with a backing track and performance track for each song, and featuring performances by the composer. This is a most entertaining album for intermediate level players."
