Listeners of all ages will appreciate this collection of poems featuring monsters, in which the wildly imaginative Rex considers a variety of quirky questions. What happens when the Phantom of the Opera can’t get a tune out of his head? When Dracula has spinach stuck in his teeth? Or when the Creature from the Black Lagoon ignores his mother’s advice and goes swimming right after lunch? L.J. Ganser clearly relishes Rex’s oddball premises and clever wordplay. Whether called upon to sing, speak in British tones, recite limericks, cackle like a witch, or scold like a mom (“That black lagoon is dark and damp/you’re going to get a stomach cramp!”), Ganser rises to the occasion with an energetic glee that enhances the humor in Rex’s poetry.
