All images by Pascal Blanchet.
However, I think I love these illustrations because they remind me of my childhood (and no, I'm not a child of the '50s). I vividly recall watching a film on the history of music every year in music class in elementary school. It's funny how much the imagery of "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom" has stuck with me over all these years. I remember anxiously awaiting the arrival onscreen of the prehistoric cavemen, especially the one who used his big belly as a drum. Some of the other characters though, wow, I definitely did not realize then how completely un-PC the whole thing is. Still, it was always a favorite of mine, with a close second of course being "Peter and the Wolf."
