These two British works relate the adventures of Perce (Priscilla) and Andy, two youngsters who have a penchant for going on adventures of a mythical nature. In these two cases they are Greek myths. "A Touch of Wind!" finds the two and their chums meeting Odysseus at the beach, encountering the four winds, and well... "Stone Me!" (which is really the first tale on the tapes) has the pair dealing with a strange supply teacher named Ms. Dusa, who has this proclivity to make people hard. Both of these tales are cleverly written (Americans should have no problem in picking up the British terms and expressions), full of puns (beware), and delightfully read by Nigel Lambert. His versatile voice perfectly captures the essence of all the characters, making these stories a real joy for young and old. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
