Carroll's classic stories of the young girl whose curiosity leads her to fantastical adventures are given a splendid airing in this BBC Radio production. Bored Alice is delighted to find that nothing is the least bit ordinary in Wonderland, and listeners will be equally delighted that nothing is the least bit ordinary about Alan Bennett's performance. The White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Mock Turtle, the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen and all the rest of Carroll's characters are given voices that suit them perfectly. Bennett's warm, enthusiastic reading will charm young and old and may encourage family reading of the classics. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
