HENRY'S LEG

by | Read by Martin Jarvis

Children Ages 10+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1985

Henry Hooper's hobby is collecting junk of all kinds. When he adds a fashion dummy's leg to his ever-growing pile of discards, his life takes a turn toward adventure as a local gang of thugs seems determined to gain possession of it. British actor Jarvis gives the novel a wonderful reading. Each character is nicely personalized. Jarvis reads at a brisk pace, generating suspense as the plot thickens, and voicing the humor of the predicaments arising out of Henry's attachment to his leg. Jarvis's spirited reading showcases this 1986 Guardian Children's Fiction Award-winning title superbly. Good fun--with a British accent. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
