Jack Prelutsky's poems have a strong following. This audio edition--in two forms: narrative and operetta--has similar appeal. The musical version, with music by Jody Tull, is performed by The Boychoir of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The operetta is lively, fun and very professional. It should attract young listeners, who will love the sound effects and gaffs that accompany it. On the second side, Jon Ophoff reads a straightforward narration of the poems. Without the sound effects and snappy music it seems a little pale, but the clear rendition focuses more on the poems. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 94]
