Sid the Snail is not satisfied with his lot in life. Speed is his passion, and when the gym does not meet his needs, he heads off in search of the fabled Ralph the Magic Rabbit. As Sid and the various compatriots he encounters carry out their quest in this tale, reminiscent of THE WIZARD OF OZ, they encounter obstacles such as swamps and menacing slugs. Narrator Daniel Hill's characters are full of personality. These include plodding Sid, tenuous and squeaky Martin the mouse, the effervescent crow, Joe, and sinister hissing snakes. Hill sings ditties, impersonates barbers and waiters, and moves the adventure along jauntily. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
