Jake the Philharmonic Dog
Written by Karen LeFrak
Illustrated by Marcin Baranski

Jake the Philharmonic Dog loves music. When his friend Richie, the principal stagehand at the Philharmonic, brings Jake to work one day, Jake "woofs!" to the tweeting woodwinds and "ruffs!" to the deep horns, but when he hears the entire symphony orchestra practice, he knows to be quiet and listen. And when a crisis develops at that night's performance, Jake steps onstage and steals the show.
Inspired by the real-life mascot of the New York Philharmonic, Jake the Philharmonic Dog is a pitch-perfect introduction to the different sounds and instruments of the orchestra.
