Gerald Durrell recounts tales worthy of a barrel of monkeys (and birds, reptiles and insects), and families will have more fun listening than you’d ever expect. Drawing from a series for the BBC on observing and gathering animals around the world, naturalist and zoo preservationist Durrell fully involves his audience. Nigel Davenport, veteran narrator of many of Durrell’s fictional stories, fluidly becomes your guide and teacher. Captivating details of the animals’ coloring, habitat and antics are fluidly presented. Small children will simply be delighted by the creatures--dragonfly, sea otter, earwigs and alligators. Davenport and Durrell draw in older listeners with entertaining professionalism. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
