Agapanthus Hum struggles to do handstands, cartwheels, and other acrobatic tricks while wearing her eyeglasses, which have a tendency to fall off as she cavorts about, so she sets out to discover what real acrobats do with their glasses.

About the Author:

One of the most beloved writers of her time, Joy Cowley is one of the first authors a child-reader discovers. Famous originally for Mrs. Wishy Washy, Agapanthus Hum has stolen Joy's heart, and ours.

From AudioFile:

Agapanthus looks at the world from different points of view, and her favorites include a twirling one and an upside down one. As she gyrates and hums from one activity to the next, Agapanthus's glasses invariably come out the worse for wear. Thanks to her Good Little Mommy and Daddy and a dazzling performer in the acrobat show, Agapanthus resolves her love of activity with eyeglass wearing. Christina Moore's narration exudes Agapanthus's excitement and conviction to be just like "the lady in the white tights." Earnestly Moore shares Agapanthus's experiments at keeping her glasses safe. Graciously, and a bit exasperatedly, she shares the parents' efforts to keep Agapanthus on an even keel. A.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
