First there was Norman the Doorman, then the Space Witch and now Don Freeman conjures up another creature, Cyrano, as magical and beguiling as his predecessors. Cyrano is a master of bird imitations. When a talent show recruits him, he performs with professional flair, but is unable to fill the last requirement of his engagement: Cyrano cannot make a crow call. Or so he thinks as he goes squawking out of the television studio. Don Freeman acknowledges the role television plays in the child's life and uses it as a device from which to spring his whimsical fantasy.
