Another wonderful Roald Dahl creation! Matilda is an innocuously named genius, struggling to survive in a world of comically boorish adults. Ironically she is saved by a combination of their neglect, her own special powers, and the tender love of her teacher, Miss Honey. Ron Keith's British accent not only recreates all of Dahl's wonderfully nasty and delightful characters, it also highlights the varied tonal qualities of each word and each phrase, carrying the listeners through the same range of feelings. Like a true maestro, Keith takes charge at all times to bring Dahl's pickwickian world to life. P.E.F. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 95]
