Jumping Frogs to Cannibalism | [Mark Twain]

Jumping Frogs to Cannibalism

There's no one quite like Mark Twain for finding humor in the most improbable situations - and these 10 stories prove it. He sets the tone in "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," and completely hooks the reader in long before reaching the snowbound railway train in "Cannibalism in the Cars."

What the Critics Say

"Becker's delivery of ten Twain pieces suggests the wry humor one imagines the author himself would use in reading them." (Booklist)
"Nothing American, in prose or verse, is more lyric to my ear than Twain's 'The [Notorious] Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.'" (Robert Frost)

    "Casette to MP4 makes for hard to discern vocal"

    My title says it all...hard to hear...garbled. Because the origin was a casette everything seems very rushed. Glad I only paid $4.
