[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER.]--Recorded over a decade ago, these volumes suffer from a few bad edits and sound quality inferior to today's standards. Tim Behrens does a spirited job performing both, fully voicing the characters and keeping his touch light. But he adds an inappropriately mincing quality to the children and women he impersonates and emphasizes the low humor. These are definitely not the most profound interpretations of these classics but are amusing enough for the casual listener. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
