The journey of the tin wind-up mouse and his child is one of the grandest hope and scale. As they travel from the toy store, encounter the swamp and the dump, and arrive finally at the dollhouse, their abilities to adapt and persevere are brought to the fore. Their quest is composed of distinct parts, each a satisfying episode unto itself. William Dufris narrates with outstanding voice artistry. For all of the myriad woodland creatures, he shares moments of hope and despair. Against the forces of Manny Rat, the two mice spur each other on, undaunted and indefatigable. As the fortune-telling frog says, "Make of fortune what you will." The mice do so superbly in this timeless recording. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
