On Hurricane Peak you wear stone boots (to avoid being blown away, of course) and attend the Unexpected School (where only the unexpected happens). Richard Mitchley's lively interpretation of this impossible romp is perfectly paced to guide listeners through the wickedly complicated plot. From the confiding tones of the narrator, to the demonic cackle of the arch villain Sir Quincy, to the sibilant syllables of the two amorous felines--Tango and Zanzibar-- Mitchley's cast of voices seems virtually limitless and consistently appropriate. This reading suits the sparkling wit of the text in the same vein as Mitchley's earlier rendition of The Birthday Burglar & The Very Wicked Headmistress, also from Chivers.
