THE PAPER DOORWAY Funny Verse and Nothing Worse

by | Read by John Ritter

Children Ages 8+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2001

Listeners will like discovering the light-hearted side of author Dean Koontz, whose fiction many know for its dark and haunting themes. This collection of "funny verse" is a mixed bag of clever word play, nonsense, devilish characters, silly rhymes and unexpected imagery. John Ritter does a reasonably good job with this uneven array of poems. The style and tone of the verse vary more than Ritter's presentation. Sometimes his narration captures the whimsy, but often the poem sounds just read. Children will hardly notice these refinements, and will laugh and giggle along delighted by Koontz's inventive characters. A CD format would make the collection more accessible. R.F.W.
