Where lies your fortune--at home or in a dream? What does a blind man see? Who best knows the innermost soul and when it will be displayed? In collected stories from Africa, the Americas, and Europe, these questions and more are explored. Hugh Lupton's storytelling shines throughout this recording. He embellishes each story with distinctive voices--the fox who cajoles and encourages the healing process, the monkey who whines his way straight to the top, the disbelieving and scornful brother-in-law. Lupton's storyteller's cadence leaves time for imagination and enjoyment. This is one time when it is important to create the scenes orally as the book's stylized illustrations detract from stories' richness. A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
