Tom, a little chimney sweep, sheds his outer shell of soot and plunges under the rivers and the sea to meet a variety of creatures of the deep. AVAILABLE ON CASSETTE ONLY.
This is a marvelous tale, alternately didactic and satiric, yet filled with sweetness, compassion and ethereal magic. Gibson gives it her usual superb rendering, complete with appropriate English accents and varied character voices...(T)he authenticity of Gibson’s interpretation, the rich flow of Kingsley’s language and Tom’s wondrous adventures will thoroughly enchant the entire family.
