Encore, Encore. This tale told in rhyming couplets just screams to be read aloud. And thanks to amazing narration by Alan Cumming, I could do just that because the brilliant Cumming had a fun, imaginative, hilarious story to work with.

Here is a story that’s stranger than strange.
Before we begin you may want to arrange:

a blanket,
a cushion,
a comfortable seat,
and maybe some cocoa and something to eat.

I’ll warn you, of course, before we commence,
my story is eerie and full of suspense,
brimming with danger and narrow escapes,
and creatures of many remarkable shapes.
Dragons and ogres and gorgons and more,
and creatures you’ve not even heard of before.
And faraway places? There’s plenty of those!
(And menacing villains to tingle your toes.)

So ready your mettle and steady your heart.
It’s time for my story’s mysterious start…

And so begins, Robert Paul Weston’s fantasy novel told entirely in rhyming couplets. It is like Dr. Seuss meets Lemony Snicket. The sing-song rhymes, funny text, and nonsense tale of adventure filled with fantastical creatures and derring do of two unlikely heroes wwill keep readers hooked. ENJOY!!!!
