Most listeners will likely enjoy this bright and whimsical survey of fungi and their associated lore--so entertainingly narrated by the skilled Al Kessel. With references that include ALICE IN WONDERLAND and George Washington Carver, the alphabetically sequenced work does not regiment the plethora of stories and myth-filled fun. Lawrence Millman, a mycologist, explains elegant mysteries of the mushroom world to the degree possible today. Listening to Kessel's wry tone and careful phrasing, one will forage through this relatively exhaustive work quickly and happily. While the physical book has attractive line drawings of mushroom varieties, the storytelling style of the narration provides the special gift of easy comprehension.
