The boy wants a pegasus. What is the father to do? Being a wealthy man, he had promised his 6 year old he could have whatever he wanted for his birthday. Of course, he wasn’t expecting the lad to ask for a mythological creature!
What ensues is creative fun involving an encyclopedia and several other animals. This short story was a joy to listen to as it was both clever and filled with child-like wonder. And perhaps a touch of 6-year old stubbornness. :) With a touch of adventure and beauty, Piers Anthony has the reader looking as reality in a different light.
The ending was fun and satisfying. Even though this story is probably marketed for kids more than adults, I felt that it was good fun for this 36-year old!
Narration: Al Kessel did a good job with the narration. He had distinct voices for the characters and injected emotions into the story. He especially did ‘wonder’ quite well. I liked his little kid voice the most.
What I Liked: The cover art; magic in the mundane; the pegasus of course!; questioning reality in a fun way.
What I Disliked: Nothing – I think this is a great short story!
