Rarely does an animal story targeted for a juvenile audience have a strong appeal for adults, as well. Quentin Corn is such a story. Not only is it a beautifully written tale, but the narrator does an outstanding job of portraying an array of characters (both human and animal) from an earlier era. The pace is perfect for all listeners. Everyone can identify with Quentin, a pig who flees his farm when he hears talk about becoming barbecue. As Quentin interacts with humans, he illustrates the ambiguous way in which humans treat and communicate with each other. This charming story translates perfectly to tape.
