Flo Gibson's inviting voice is like hearing Baum's classic told from a grandmother's lap. The story opens at a brisk pace as Tip flees the wrath of an evil sorceress and searches for safety. Passing through the Emerald City, Tip witnesses the overthrow of the scarecrow king by some unlikely foes. Gibson's overly dramatic telling of angry young maidens brandishing knitting needles and usurping the scarecrow's throne will have listeners in stitches. Her animated characterizations of the eclectic group of creatures Tip and the Scarecrow recruit to regain the crown recreate the exotic world of Oz. Full of humor and adventure, Gibson's performance will be enjoyed by all ages. M.P.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 94]
