Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeremy Irons

Children Ages 6+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1961

An absolute treat. Roald Dahl’s now classic story of a boy who escapes household tyranny and finds adventure by way of a magical peach is elevated to new heights by Jeremy Irons’s performance. Irons is unfettered as the whimsical and sometimes sardonic insect comrades of James, creating vivid, unforgettable characters you’ll be sorry to say good-bye to. A fine entertainment for all, and a valuable addition to the family’s audio bookshelf. This is an instance in which a highly talented star is let loose in the candy store of the imagination and has the good manners to share the treats with everyone. D.J.B.
