Awesome performance, great story!
This story is jam-packed with fun and crazy. For me, it is better listened to aloud than read quietly because all of the voices bring the story to life. Very dynamic, imaginative, and engaging!

this is a fantastic, and unexpected read
What made the experience of listening to Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet the most enjoyable?
The wacky characters! They are so diverse, and easy to fall in love with.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet?
When Zeff pretends he has lost his legs in the plain crash.
Have you listened to any of Nancy Wu’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, the Lucky Hat Mine by Julie Van Laanen, and some of the Undead books by MaryJanice Davidson. This one stands up really nicely to them! Nancy Wu always delivers a thought out, engaging performance. And this one is particularly impressive because of the sheer number, and variety of characters.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There was definitely a lot of laughing at some of the characters shenanigans. And a lot of indignation and anger at the treatment of the "unusual's".
Any additional comments?
This book was totally unexpected. It manages to blend a historical setting and a fictional (though based in events that did happen in other locations) plot together with a crowd of diverse characters that make you fall in love with them. It exploits important social issues, and takes you for a wild ride that both entertains and stimulates your mind.
