Sean Bridgers narrates the unique story of Yip Tolroy, who tells a colorful tale of adventure despite his inability to speak since birth. Bridgers's performance allows the listener to easily digest the sometimes stilted nineteenth-century speech and enjoy the author's delightful turns of phrase. Odd-looking Yip--who's short and completely bald--inadvertently commits a crime that causes him to need to leave town. Bridgers provides a folksy, introspective portrayal of the determined outcast, along with distinctive voices for the Irish vagabond who traps Yip in his circus and the terrified escaped slave who becomes an unlikely traveling companion. Best of all is Bridgers's characterization of Dud Carter, Yip's unwaveringly cheerful sidekick, whose faith in him is steadfast. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
