"Tricksters extraordinaire Anansi (a spider) and Turtle are at it again. In this tale, parties are the topic. Fulfilling each of his tasks takes a long time, and Turtle may never arrive to enjoy Anansi's party. And when Anansi heads to Turtle's party, she finds it's a mite difficult to enjoy the underwater event. Jerry Terheyden's narration alternates between the slow pace of a turtle and the bounce of an exuberant spider. Terheyden's voice is high pitched and often grating as Anansi and deep and deliberate as Turtle. A W.C. Fields-like characterization of Crab provides comic relief. Balloons filing with air and underwater bubbles are among the fitting sound effects. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
