Delightful... if you can get past Shari Lewis rapping

"If you're expecting the Shari Lewis from her earlier Hi Kids! days, steer clear of this CD. Instead of bubbly Lawrence Welk-style arrangements and a 19 year old voice that can't contain its nascent sexuality, you'll find the middle-aged Shari here singing a few pitches lower over synthesized backdrops and a metronomic drum machine. Don't Wake Your Mom is more than the title of a cut, it's the theme of this concept album with five songs, one story (Sleeping Beauty) and trademark Shari Lewis puppet patter. Once you get over the Rip Van Winkle rap, the apparent demise of Wing Ding and the constant boom-whack of sampled snares, you may fall in love with album as we did, drawn towards Shari's vision of suburbia (Track five) where the music from the street outside is coming from a parade and not a car stereo."
