What exactly is "The Lost Thing"? There aren't any lost pet notices in the paper, and parents don't seem to take any notice. Friend Pete seems unimpressed, but the compassionate hero of this thought-provoking tale is determined to locate a home for the creature, elusive though it may be. The narration and production add to the mystery surrounding "The Lost Thing." Humphrey Bower is quiet and tentative as the story unfolds. His voice repeatedly trails off, highlighting the story's tone of bewilderment. The sound effects and upbeat music lend a science fiction flair. Listeners will ponder the story as they pore over Tan's detailed and mind-expanding illustrations. A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
