As you might imagine, Thimble Corner is presented as a place you visit. The trolley conductor (Copp, naturally) takes a little time to introduce his intrigued passenger (Brown, naturally) to some of the people who live there. At least 26 of them by my count can be found in "The House On Thimble Street" (Track #2), each of whom has a very specific chore to perform ("I'm Thomas Tuggs. I buy the jugs. I'm Gertie Scruggs. I beat the rugs. I'm Lucy Gluck. I feed the duck. My name is Nash. I burn the trash.") We meet "The Dog That Went To Yale" (track #6), who in addition to his impressive canine intellect has the longest name in the world. Following that is "Cloudy Afternoon" (track #7), in which a boy pedals to a nearby park with his nanny, leaves her sleeping on a bench, has a number of adventures involving insects, other children, and a truck, and gets drenched in a sudden rainstorm.
Those, to my mind, are the absolute standouts. The remaining tracks include "The Carpenter and the Duck," "The Turkey in Satin," "The Apartment House," "Miss Goggins and her Troupe," "Can't Dance," and "Time To Leave." You'll no doubt find them worth the price of admission. You might even decide they're better than good.

Excellent! I grew up listening to this, it was always a special treat when mom put this on for us to hear. We loved Miss Goggins, the dog with the longest name, just all of it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Eve
Brings back happy childhood memories. The stories are weird, funny and include moral lessons. Adults and children both will love.Published on November 18, 2013 by Paige Turner
