What happens when the last giant on earth is unrequited for thousands of years in his quest to marry the moon? The townspeople of Pupickton see the legendary giant reflected in a nearby landform and believe they must be as quiet as can be, lest the giant be disturbed. Along comes Carolinda Clatter--the very personification of NOISE. Sound is the focus of this recording. Whispers of townspeople, banging pots, moaning caves, throaty grumblings, soothing lullabies, and joyous song abound. Mordicai Gerstein's narration floats above this backdrop. He speeds and slows to highlight moments of emotion. One senses that he's having as much fun crafting this recording as he had creating the original story and illustrations.
