Professional reviews

"ALICE IN WONDERLAND for the urban child! When Gregor's sister, Boots, falls through a grate in the laundry room, he follows to rescue her and lands in an Underland populated with humans, giant spiders, bats, cockroaches, and rats. In spite of his aversion to the creatures and atmosphere of this hidden world, Gregor agrees to accept the role of Warrior in the hope of eventually making his way back home. Paul Boehmer's interpretation has just the right mix of suspense, mystery, and adventure to keep all listeners engaged. His voices create unique personalities for each character, and the straightforward production transports listeners to this fantasy world. A promising author. N.E.M.
