One of Australia's hottest writers for children entertains kids and families with a lively performance of short stories. The stories are filled with zany humor, as well as a few touching tales of kids learning important life lessons. Although listeners may be caught off guard by the Australian slang, such as "dunny" for bathroom, they will quickly understand the terms through the context of the stories. Stig Wemyss's performance conveys the enthusiasm and energy of the youngsters in the stories, and his Australian accent lends authenticity to tales of feral animals and trains to Melbourne. Even the lime green color of the cassettes adds to the fun. K.M.D. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
