Princess Cimorene wants more out of life than to be the wife of a boring, proper prince. Tired of her sedate existence, she takes up fencing, cooking, Latin, even magic. But each endeavor is ended with the admonition that "princesses just don't do that." Faced with marriage, she decides it's time to find some adventures of her own and runs away, ending up as the dragon Kazul's "princess," and finding adventure, danger, and challenges galore. The Words Take Wing cast starts off with stilted, clipped speech--enunciating each and every word--which is good for those reading along but which loses the fluidity of the text for listeners. Gradually, most of the characters relax into their roles and the dialogue flows more smoothly, allowing the listener to get involved in the story. W.L.S.
