He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy.

Reviews

Reader Reynolds buoyantly leads listeners down the rabbit hole and into the topsy-turvy world of Carroll s Wonderland. When the young Alice follows a waistcoat-wearing rabbit holding a pocket watch, she finds herself in a fantastical world of talking mice, disappearing cats, hookah-smoking caterpillars, fish-headed footmen, and babies who turn into pigs. She shrinks smaller than a mouse and grows tall as a tree, participates in a mad tea party, plays croquet using flamingos for mallets, and runs afoul of the ill-tempered Queen of Hearts, whose cry of Off with their heads! seems to be the answer to most anything. It is a madcap, nonsensical entertainment, and Reynolds leaps into this tale s telling with enthusiastic aplomb. Fully embracing the material, Reynolds delivers the author s whimsical prose, poetry, and quirky characters with just the right touch of theatricality: bigger than life, but not completely over-the-top."
