The Wonderful World of Oz Audio Theatre Production by Colonial Radio Theatre is a marvelous
collection … featuring the first five stories in the Oz series: The Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, Ozma of
Oz, Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz, and The Road to Oz.
The Colonial Radio Players do a good job in bringing to life the Oz characters. Amy Strack
has a youthful, yet intelligent voice which is great for Dorothy. Leigh Ann Price does an equally fine job with
Princess Ozma, with her regal and playful voice. With sound effects, characters come to life as they had never have
before, most notably Tik-Tok and the Musicker. The sound effects of Nick Chopper walking is entirely
Listening to the stories reveals fresh insights into some of the characters. In Ozma of Oz,
the Nome King is portrayed more as a trickster than an evil villain. In The Road to Oz, Button Bright is not an
annoying little boy, but an inquisitive youth who asks about things by repeating the familiar phase, "Don't
It is fascinating to listen to "L. Frank Baum" as he reads the introduction to each of the
stories. One can hear his frustration in not being able to write other stories, when his "loving tyrants" cry out,
"Oz! Oz! More about Oz!" Baum can't even write an Oz story without Dorothy because, "It isn't a real Oz story

"That's what happened to Bobby Pendragon. He was living the life of a normal 14 year old
guy, until his Uncle Press came by one night to say: "I need your help." From that moment on, nothing was the same.
He and his uncle were swept off on a series of adventures that would take them through both time and space. Their
mission? To protect the territories of Halla from a demon named Saint Dane, a cold-blooded villian who wants
nothing less than the destruction of all humanity. The only force standing in Saint Dane's way is a mysterious
group of people called...Travelers." D.J McHale
Gr. 6-9. If one were to categorize fantasies with respect to religion, Nicholson's first entry in his new Noble
Warriors series would side with C. S. Lewis, not Philip Pullman: its 16-year-old hero vows to protect his
compassionate, monotheistic religion from destruction, even as his rejection by its exclusive sect of warrior-monks
tests his faith. Seeker's quest brings him to the culturally distinct city of Radiance, where evildoers plot to
send a suicide bomber into the Noble Warriors' stronghold. Tight plotting and numerous perspectives, including
those of a devout shepherd girl, a not-quite-reformed bandit, and Seeker's elder brother (a shamefully defrocked
Noble Warrior), lend the novel a cinematic breadth perfectly consistent with Nicholson's background as a Hollywood
screenplay writer. Less appealing is the often heavy-handed moralizing, particularly apparent in the portrayal of
Radiance's mercenary citizens, who offer human sacrifices to prove their wealth and status. All the same, readers
with a strong belief in their own god may welcome a novel that depicts such unswerving devotion in young people,
and fans of Nicholson's Wind Singer trilogy will find many of its same attractions reincarnated here. Jennifer
