16 Spooky Pieces to Play and Sing, with spellbinding jazz accompaniments by Ben Attwood (grades 1 and 2, using 1st and 2nd finger patterns; Violin and Piano with CD) -- "Ben and I really enjoyed writing Wizard's Potion. We hope that Kate's lovely illustrations and the lyrics of the early pieces will encourage you to compose your own music, write your own poems, and draw your own illustrations. There is a page for you to create your own 'potions' at the back of the book. It is great fun to do. Most of all, have fun playing the pieces. When learning each new piece, listen to Matthew and Ben playing on the accompanying CD, then follow the instructions suggested at the top of each page. Finally, play along with Ben accompanying you and don't forget to do the sound effects!" (Caroline Lumsden)
