Eric Idle, a former member of Monty Python's Flying Circus, adapts Edward Lear's poems and drawings into a delightful retelling of the tale of "The Owl and the Pussycat." Filled with jokes for adults and children alike, this is a delight to the ear. Idle exuberantly performs a dozen different silly voices, sings at least as many silly songs, and has the tone just right. Idle breaks the chapters frequently, often commenting on the title, and even integrates the instructions to turn over the tape into his narration. Puns, social commentary, gentle humor, and old-fashioned storytelling are woven into a well-paced whole by this comedic veteran. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
