My Narrator got Trapped in a Hotel Closet….

kids books, audio books, fairy talesThe weirdest, best, weirdest, most awesome, weirdest, and most fun thing is happening right now, and Cheets and my kids book, The Exciting Exploits of an Effervescent Elf are indirectly involved.  My wonderful narrator for the audio books got trapped in the closet at a hotel while narrating the EEElf?

It was a crazy hilarious saga, and because she was in the middle of narrating, and she had a sound recording of the whole ordeal. A few months ago, Carin pitched the story of her “trapped in the closet” saga to the NPR radio show This American Life, and they LOVED it! They were going to use it as a segment on one of their shows a few weeks ago, but Ira Glass (CEO) decided he wanted to do something totally different… by turning the story of me trapped in the closet into a mini opera. 

When Ira Glass came up with the idea to turn it into an opera, we had no idea how he would use my book. Carin was embarrassed at the time because she was sending me the  “first 15 minutes”  ever (this was our first book together)and she got trapped. At the time, we had a good laugh!  In the radio show you can hear her narrating the first two sentences of The Exciting Exploits of fairies, elves, fabled forest, children's books, audio booksan Effervescent Elf and then realizing she is trapped.

    1. Sorry, no operas here. Plenty of high school settings. Browse around and see what you like if anything. But look at:
