dc.description.abstractWe read on the title-page: First Read Over the Radio from the Home Roost of the H G W Keep-Growing-Wiser Order of Hoot Owls in the Oregonian Tower at Portland, Oregon. This 54-page pamphlet features twelve delightful live radio scripts, up-to-date slang parodies of known stories given plenty of local color from the Portland, Oregon area. There are three fables among its twelve offerings. These are LM (13), GGE (27), and TH (41). Collins transforms LM quite thoroughly. The lion, looking for lunch, comes upon the mouse while the latter is working on his income tax. In fact, that is also what the lion is doing a year later when he walks into the net. Here the mouse comes upon him by chance, and the lion suggests that the mouse gnaw a few of these strings. The mouse makes sure that he is well tied up and then kicks him in the pants and walks away. And the moral of this story, dear children, is: The important thing is to know when you can get away with it (15). GGE concerns a financial scheme dreamed up by a son to save his parents' bankrupt farm. The race in TH is from Portland to NY. The tortoise gets himself picked up by a traveler. There is in this longish story, as in the other stories, some delightful play on words. Other offerings include songs, a history of Oregon, Pandora, Baucis and Philemon, Jonah, Goldilocks, and The Little Red Hen Re-Read.en_US
