THE SHEPHERD, THE ANGEL, AND WALTER THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE DOG

by | Read by Dave Barry

Humor • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2006

What do you tell your little sister when her dog dies on Christmas Eve? In the Christmas extravaganza, is it better to be a shepherd or a "Three King"? What do you do when a ton of bat poop breaks through the floor of the church belfry and drops on your sweetheart? This child's first-person account of a Christmas pageant gone awry reminds one of Jean Shepherd's classic A CHRISTMAS STORY. However, Barry's reading is flat and a bit rushed. He steps on his jokes. Yet the risible situations--as when the hero's dad disguises the dog's corpse as part of a crèche--manage to shine through. Y.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
