WHO'S AFRAID AND OTHER STRANGE STORIES

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christian Rodska

Children • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1978, 1981, 1983-86

Eleven short stories share a common theme of chance interactions with non-life forms, all beginning with various odd encounters. Rodska's remarkable, chameleon-like voice meets the challenge of adapting to the myriad characters. The many British dialects required by the characters seem little challenge to Rodska as he appropriately matches voice with character, mood and story. This ability to aptly capture the essence of each character enhances his performance. The slightly fast-paced narration adjusts to a slower, more controlled reading for the interludes of suspense and eerie encounters. Children in grades 2--5 who like stories with a different twist are sure to enjoy this rendition. P.A.J. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
