Would you like to know how the whale got his throat, the rhino his skin, or the camel his hump? Well, best beloved, this production's for you. In Jim Weiss's engaging preface, the storyteller points out Kipling's devotion to rhythm and rhyme, and his love of language—delights that Weiss himself clearly shares. Weiss is in his element retelling Kipling's familiar stories, which offer plenty of scope for his expansive, playful narration as well as delightful opportunities to characterize different animal personas. From whale to tortoise to elephant, Weiss's droll talent and insights into Kipling's stories engage. His pacing, dynamics, and drama make these old favorites brightly new, while his intimate delivery makes listeners feel cherished and cozy as they savor these classics. J.C.G.
