Toybox | [Al Sarrantonio]

Toybox

Little Selene was bored. And then came the mysterious Toyman, carrying a very special toybox, filled with wonders and terrors beyond imagination. As Selene peered into the toybox, the stories tumbled out: a quiet little girl whose horrible secret bursts forth at a Halloween party... a doll made of corn that hides a very nasty surprise... a depraved celebration for the last vampire... All of these and many more awaited Selend - and now they wait for you - inside the toybox. Go ahead, open it, if you dare.

    "Very well read short horror stories"
    What made the experience of listening to Toybox the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was an awesome choice for this colleciton of short stories. A large variety of stories (one is even sort of Sci-fi) made this a very enjoyable collection too.


    Have you listened to any of Al Dano’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I never have, but I will be seeking Al Dano out.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is one story that almost made me throw-up because I was so disgusted by it (had two children killing animals). All of the others were great.
