FOREST A Journey from the Wild

by | Read by Caroline Lee

Children Ages 10+ • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Caroline Lee's story about Kian, a house cat abandoned in a forest with two kittens, Cally and Jem, has no sentimentality in the writing or reading. Kian struggles with the feeling that he's not equal to his current situation while Jem and Cally confront the idea that they don't want to leave the forest. Lee gives a muted reading that conveys the cats' reliance on instinct, rather than emotion. Her performance is imbued with the sense of menace Kian feels from the forest and all the animals surrounding him. The production gives listeners a thought-provoking glimpse into a world that seems both alien and familiar. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
