THE CREMATION OF SAM McGEE
Poem by Robert Service. Original artwork by Ted Harrison.
Volume 20 Number 4
This re-telling of a favourite poem is accompanied by "camera-animated video" resembling Inuit silkscreens. The reading by Max Ferguson is spooky and emotional; the illustrations are bright, varied, and perfectly representative of the content and mood of the poem. The length, given the lack of full animation, is appropriate. An excellent advance organizer for a creative writing exercise.
