Four narrators and a musical score re-create the engaging quality of this picture book. The audio draws listeners in immediately as Robin Miles's narration plays off the music. As Miles describes the Bunny family's discovery of a "bundle outside their door," melodramatic piano riffs add an ominous tone reminiscent of silent films. This delightful interplay between words and music continues throughout. The character of young Dot steals the show in the book and also does so in the audio with the narration of Molly Cavett. Cavett dynamically expresses Dot's reactions to her foster wolf-brother. Dot registers doubt, fear, and, finally, sarcasm as she gives up on changing the attitudes of her smitten parents, portrayed by Wendy and Ken Cavett. Their doting tones strengthen the humor in Dot's rejoinders. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2016]
