by | Read by Michael Curran-Dorsano

Children Ages 6+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Michael Curran-Dorsano takes on the roles of Teddy, the "talking" Irish wolfhound and dear companion of Sylvan the poet, and of 11-year-old Nickel and 8-year-old Flora, the children Teddy rescues from a wintry blizzard. It is the simpatico nature of poets, children, and animals that enables each to understand and talk to the others. As the children spend days with Teddy in the cabin, they come to know the story of the relationship between the poet (now deceased) and his dog and the poignancy of togetherness in times of sorrow, danger, and joy. Given Curran-Dorsano's unassuming narration, there are moments when one forgets whether the speaker is human or canine. While a bit confusing at times, overall, the production has great power.
