"This is going to be a day I will never forget!" exclaims Stanley Birdbaum as his mother helps him prepare for Crazy Hair Day. With Halloween hair spray and styling gel how can he go wrong? Arriving in the classroom, Stanley is greeted by his classmates' laughter. But why? Dejected and alone in the boys bathroom, Stanley is befriended by Larry Finchfeather, the class troublemaker, who is exercising his peacemaking skills. Zach Braff narrates at a snappy pace. His rising voice and staccato speech followed by monotone, elongated moments depict both Stanley's elation and dejection. As the two classmates negotiate Stanley's return to the classroom, Braff is distinctively Larry and distinctively Stanley. Saltzberg's original score provides a jaunty background. An author interview and original CRAZY HAIR DAY song conclude the production. A.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
