This is the story of a toy box where, a long time ago, a dancing doll and a wooden soldier lived in a huddle. At night, after the children fell asleep, the box would open and ... ôSo begins this work that Debussy wrote for his daughter Chou-Chou and all the children in the world in mind.

The text of the story is included in the CD booklet.
