Classics • 1.4 hrs. • Abridged • © 1957

In his witty and provocative way, Thurber creates a land where the letter "o" has been removed from all words in a ploy to punish the townspeople for their noncooperation in helping the villains find the object of their quest. Thurber treats the listener to a myriad of situations and words in the new world without "o’s." A sense of drama and distinctive elocution serve Melissa Manchester well as she brings Thurber’s whimsical escapade to life. Her melodrama is highly exaggerated as Andrea, Andreus, and the Old Man assist the townspeople in discovering the one lost "o" word that will restore tranquility. Manchester’s tongue slides flawlessly from words still containing the letter "o" to ones that are now "o" -less. A.R. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
