What could be worse than being a lightning bug that cannot light? For young Leo, who is smaller than all his friends and laughed at for all his efforts, the humiliation is overwhelming. The sanctuary of a lightless cave "for a lightless lightning bug" is the perfect place for Leo to vent his feelings and to contemplate a solution. Pleasure abounds in this production. At the start, the listener is invited to cozy up for a bedtime story. Drachman's young nephew is a fabulous Leo and melts hearts with his dejection, earnest efforts to light his light, and soaring confidence. Cricket melodies, rain, and the lightning strike will have listeners checking out the window. Children and adults combine to make this a child-friendly presentation. A.R.
