   “This is classic British fantasy at its best. Reminiscent of Lewis Carroll, C. S. Lewis, and J. R. R.Tolkien, Pike’s Grumpuss is, by turns, poignantly true of both the foibles and triumphs of humankind – a fitting selection for the World Premiere Benefit Performance for Save the Children. Ultimately, Grumpuss is quality family entertainment...an affirming and charming tale, Travis Edward Pike’s performance video is, too, a triumphant success.

Written and performed by Travis Edward Pike (Otherworld Cottage Industries 2013)

CRITIQUE: Grumpuss: 15th Anniversary Audio Theater Edition (79 min, 2 sec.), is A two-CD set rendering Travis Edward Pike’s award-winning epic fantasy poem into audio “theater of the mind.” This is the original 1998 studio recording of Grumpuss, read by the author and rescued from the archives, remastered with fresh recordings of Pike’s original music, enhanced with sound effects. What, you may ask, is a Grumpuss? It’s a legendary beast similar to a ferocious cat, “With tremendous paws and gigantic claws, and jaws that can crush armor flat!” Grumpuss 15th Anniversary Audio Theater Edition is a treat for fantasy connoisseurs, a welcome addition to public and school library audio book collections, and makes an excellent gift.”

   The October 1999 School Library Journal reported "This original narrative poem written and told by American storyteller Travis Edward Pike is a wonderful story laced with thought-provoking themes. Pike’s superb skill as a storyteller elevates the tale to a rare level. The rich language and Pike’s voice variations paint vivid pictures in the listener’s mind . . . The musical background (composed by Pike) and sound effects add to the humor, poignancy, and drama. An outstanding choice for school and public library collections."
