Rated "A" by Brigham Young University CHILDREN'S BOOK REVIEW: "This collection of three folk tales produced in Commedia style is a theatrical delight. . . . Dialogue is quick paced, action abounds." (Harold R. Oaks, BYU)
". . . high spirits, creative comedy talents and generous helpings of vaudevillian fun. . . . (LOUISVILLE COURIER-JOURNAL)
"PROFESSOR ZUCCINI is delighting our young audiences." (Actor's Theatre of Louisville, KY)
"To say that PROFESSOR ZUCCINI was a rousing success is a gross understatement! We have been told that it was the best show that ever toured the schools" (Jane Street, Lees-Mcrae College; NC.)
