Discovered 33 years after Plath's death, this fable tells of the desire of Max Nix to get a suit of clothes. Not an ordinary, workaday suit, but a suit for doing everything. Then, one day a mysterious parcel arrives, and Max sees a chance to get his wish. A British cast of adults and children gives a spirited presentation of this charming fable, making clear its patterns and repetition, as well as its poetic language, which will appeal to young listeners.
