Ever a dreamer and a doer, William C. Coup left his father's tavern behind and reinvented both himself and the entertainment world. As he headed east, he encountered sideshows with Tom Thumb and Dan Rice's tightrope-walking elephants. His mind raced. Where would our current world be without circus rings or circus trains or aquariums? Nelson Runger sets a leisurely and purposeful pace. As he emphasizes specific words and pauses thoughtfully, young listeners have time to admire entertainment features we take for granted, such as sea creatures being viewed for the first time and full orchestras accompanying each show. Runger's quiet tone underscores Coup's own satisfaction with his life and his "bigger dream to be found." A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
