Ralph Cosham reads this story in a droll, low-key style. Although he makes little attempt at dialects, voices and characterizations, his tone is perfectly suited to both the curious events and to Alice's matter-of-fact responses. Since it was originally created as a "read aloud," Alice lends itself beautifully to audio: unabridged, it's the right length, and the various characters appear one at a time and don't overwhelm the listener. One of the first books ever written for children, this pointed Victorian nonsense will charm them. Adults will be delighted to rediscover it. A.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 95]
