In an amazing demonstration of oral acrobatics, Edward Woodward does so much more than bring an incredible story to life. This retelling of Thurber’s classic has it all: a good story, good pace, offbeat humor, lovable heroes, the darkest of villains and a lovely princess in distress. Add exquisite sound effects and Woodward’s lively reading, and the result is a big story in a small package. Often such sound effects can be distracting--this production is anything but. The listener freefalls into this cliff-hanger of a silly tale. An absolute must-listen for Thurber fans, fairy tale lovers, and audiobook aficionados.
