A teasing character distinguishes this piece from the other selections in Pour les Enfants. A rolling accompaniment and expressive sixteenth notes add to the mood. Though it is a bit difficult in this work, students need to create long phrases. The accompaniment has the responsibility of keeping the lines moving. Additionally, since the right hand often has thick textures, voicing the melody can be challenging.
