Arranged alphabetically, however, the pieces can be played in any order or as many as desired - as they are intended to include pieces for all skill levels. Of particular note is "Weevil Hoedown", which was written for Black keys only. Try writing an interesting piece of any length for just the black keys that doesn't sound trite. I think this came off quite well. Also, "Fireflies" must be played in the dark or the audience must close their eyes as the whole piece centers on the anticipation of the fireflies appearance. "March of the Army Ants" and "The Queen and Her Court" were adapted from previous pieces never used. "The Elephant Beetle" was the first of these written a number of years ago. Originally these were all to be easy piano pieces. Turned out they run the gamut of difficulty from very easy to very difficult using a number of different musical styles.
