Once you meet the revolting Rabbles, you'll never forget them. They're a charming but eccentric family who hire themselves out for any fete or occasion that requires an Elizabethan farmer, servant, pig tender, or aristocrat. Narrator Sophie Aldred is great as the kids, parents, and the would-be upper-crust Elizabeth Fayre, who looks down on the Rabbles. The dynamics of this special family are fascinating; the points of view include the kids observing their parents and outsiders reacting to the Rabbles. Aldred's jaunty presentation keeps the history lessons flowing without listeners realizing how much they're learning. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
