The Princess Climorene, sick and tired of doing the proper thing, runs away from home. She ends up volunteering to work for the dragon Kazul, who allows her to do improper things like studying Latin, learning magic spells and making cherries jubilee. The Words Take Wing Repertory Company offers overall strong performances as princesses, knights, dragons and wizards; the narrator smoothly delivers a seamless reading. Despite a weak rendering of the dragon Kazul, whose overly dramatic, less-than-smooth reading grates in large doses, the other actors work together to make this witty, humorous fairy tale truly enchanting. References to well-known fairy tales and strong female characters result in a wonderful listen for the entire family. J.A.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
