The Amazing Bone
Composer Aaron Robinson is currently recording his 9th album: “The Amazing Bone” for Narrator and Orchestra with book by William Steig (children’s book illustrator, author and creator of “Shrek!”) with narration by character voice actress Lee K. Paige.
“The Amazing Bone” won the Caldecott Award in 1977. The story tells about the adventures of a pig named Pearl and her discovery of an amazing bone that can talk and perform magic. Along their journeys together they are greeted by a gang of robbers and a hungry fox who lures Pearl back to his house for “dinner.” “The Amazing Bone” will be featured along with composer Jamie Oshima’s brilliant recording of John Burningham’s “Cannonball Simp” for Narrator and Orchestra.
Release date for this album has yet to be determined. The album will be submitted for consideration with the Grammy Recording Academy.
