You and your kids or grandkids can't miss with Roald Dahl. Here Joanna Lumley, member of the Order of the British Empire and star of "Absolutely Fabulous," brings Dahl's curious tales to life with rich delivery and a true sense of fun. And to those imagining her hard-drinking TV persona making an appearance here, let me assure you that she has a wonderful reader's voice, perfectly appropriate for children. MINPINS is a young boy's fantasy trip to a world of miniature people while ESIO TROT explores a gentle love story involving turtles and two aging Britishers. Dahl's wit and fancy and Lumley's charm make good, family-safe fun. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
