The musical version of Eudora Welty’s Shoe Bird is fantastic.  Buy it now!  My mother and I listened to it over the weekend.  We intended to just sample and come back later, but like a good box of chocolates, we soon realized we’d consumed the whole thing.   You should also buy the book, of course, but the musical is just delightful. 

You would especially enjoy sharing it with children.  This is Welty’s only children’s book.  But you don’t have to be a child to love it.  My mother and I had a fine time with it.

If there isn’t an animated film made from this, I’ll be highly disappointed.
