Michael Bond's beloved guinea pig, Olga da Polga, expands her world when she leaves the pet shop and comes to live with Sawdust People, where she amazes her new friends with fabulous stories. Noel the cat, Graham the tortoise, and Fangio the hedgehog hear why guinea pigs have stubby tails, how they traveled to the moon, and other stories. Lynda Bellingham's resonant voice underscores Olga's commanding personality. She stretches words and elongates pauses to give import to the highlights of Olga's tales. When Olga falls victim to her own exaggerations, Bellingham demurs and slides quickly to the next. She brings a richness to the recording. A.R.
