THE BLOSSOMS AND THE GREEN PHANTOM

by | Read by Blain Fairman

Children Ages 8+ • 3.4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

No one seems to be interested in Junior Blossom's latest invention--an imaginative but awkwardly constructed UFO. But in true Blossom style Junior's family rallies to support him when he despairs of ever launching the Green Phantom. Blain Fairman gives an uneven reading of this story from Byars's popular Blossom Family Series. In particular, the voice of Junior is ill-chosen; it seems unnatural and so whiny that the boy doesn't seem the least bit likeable. Fairman's characterization of Pap, on the other hand, is wonderful. His portrayal of the grandfather tumbling into a dumpster while attempting to rescue a puppy is the highlight of the reading. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
