In a story that strongly parallels ALICE IN WONDERLAND, a black rabbit leads Lorina to the Castle, a mysterious and insular world run by pigs. Once inside, Lorina begins a seemingly impossible quest to save the green people who are starving and dying outside the Castle gates. Clive Mantle's lively vocal characterizations combined with his authoritative narration make the fantastic elements of the story seem plausible. Mantle has a wonderful way of integrating various animals' sounds with their dialogue. While this audio is not likely to have mass appeal, it will find an audience among young fans of the absurd.
