The Wonderful O shows Thurber at his most playful and witty in his mastery of story and language. I first read this in my teens and have never forgotten it.
The tale is one of great relevance to today's world. I recommend it most highly and hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do.
Melissa Manchester gives an inspired reading.
Be aware that there is a strange sort of half summary before the real tale begins. This summary is not part of the book and feels as if it is a truncated something left here by mistake.
I have always loved all the mary Poppins books. I have been delighted with Sophie Thompson's reading of the books. She is excellent as Mary Poppins in particular. I highly recommend this book.
Beautifully written by Michael Morpurgo and beautifully read by Dan Stevens, he really does bring the story to life...Dan Stevens does every book he narrates justice, he has to be my favourite narrator by far.
