Violinist and author Kristine Papillon has brought her formidable talents as author and illustrator to the pages of this book. And, in the best tradition of all collaborative artists, she has enlisted the enthusiastic support of her musical friends and colleagues.

A beautiful CD accompanies the book, with the playing of all of Mrs. Crumpet’s friends, as performed by violin soloist Anne Akiko Meyers and 32 other world-class artists, including narration by Fort Wayne Philharmonic Maestro Andrew Constantine.

Praise for Crumpet:

“What a brilliant way to introduce young children to the exciting and magical world of classical music! The paintings are joyful and beautiful, and the story is both humorous and sweet. As a musician and mother of a small child myself, I love it!” - Alison Balsom, World Renowned Trumpet Soloist

“Thank you for writing such a beautiful story! The illustrations are amazing, and I was teary-eyed reading and listening to the music. Thank you for sharing your gift with us all. Every child I have given this to asks to listen and read it again and again.” - Anne Akiko Meyers, World Renowned Violin Soloist

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
