Cris the Cricket
Press the buttons and listen to the music!
An enchanting sound button book written by Oriol Garcia Molsosa with the adorable characters from Gusti. A story about a cricket composer, a seed and… a song.
Cris the Cricket wishes to be a composer but has run out of inspiration. He always sings the same song: a boring and repetitive cric-cric. One day he decides to plant his cric-cric as a seed. In order to make it grow, he asks the animals that pass by for help.
Marlow the Sparrow and many others help him to water the seed. And, little by little, spread by spread, the seed becomes a song…
Press the buttons to hear the different animal sounds specially set to music on each page and sing along as the music plays in a joint finale.
