There are two delightful pieces on this CD. One is "Archie and Mehitabel" narrated wonderfully well. Based on the book written and published in the early 1900's by Dan Marquis, it is about Archie, a poet and philosopher in a former life, transmigrated into the body of a cockroach. At night he takes over the typewriter of a human writer who is kind enough to always leave an empty sheet of paper in it before retiring. Archie pounds out stories about himself, his views and feelings, working with all his might. The other character is Mehitibel, a very precocious alley cat, transmigrated into her current form but having once been Cleopatra. It is about their adventures, and is a delight for those who enjoy the whimsical, have a vivid imagination, and are fun-loving in spirit.
The second part of the CD is the equally delightful and fun-loving "Carnival of Animals" by Saint Saens with excellently done narration of the accompanying readings and poems.
