OZ Fest

My home page has a link to the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA.  Carle is a children’s book illustrator and author, famous for The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Until October 22, the museum has an exhibit called “The Wonderful Art of OZ.”  I’ve seen it and I recommend it highly.  The exhibit includes about 20 original W.W. Denslow drawings from the first OZ book, and that should be incentive enough.

Starting with the next posting, I will begin an audio presentation of the 24 chapters in The Wonderful Wizard of OZ.  The adaptation is from a 4-disk LP album published by Crown in 1961.  My family received it as a Christmas gift from our maternal grandfather over 40 years ago.

The Incredible EVA•TONE

In an earlier posting I introduced Eva•tone Soundsheets. Forty years ago, Stan Lee of Marvel Comics put out a couple of flexi-discs. The first was “The Voices of Marvel,” and the other was “Scream Along with Marvel.” Face Front!
