Short review for a short story.
This story, written by the luminary Ray Bradbury, is the story of an old American woman who struggles with her inability to read- until for a few brief weeks she gains the ability. It reminded me a lot of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin.
As always, LeVar Burton does an excellent job of bringing this story to life with excellent narration and music and sound effects.
