THE STORY OF DOCTOR DOLITTLE

by | Read by Alan Bennett

Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

Opening with jaunty music, this story of the good Doctor Dolittle's fascinating and magical adventures will charm kids 9 and up. It's truly amazing how a single reader can portray a female, several animal voices and a few male parts, as well. Some of the parts stretch Bennett a bit. His rendition of Polynesia the parrot is annoyingly screechy and high. He does his best reading for the middle-aged characters, as in his portrayal of Dolittle and his sister, Sara. The hoity-toity lion is well portrayed also. A.G.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
