BASIL AND THE LIBRARY GHOST The Great Mouse Detective, Book 8

by | Read by Ralph Lister

Children Ages 6+ • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Exuberant character voices and fast pacing whisk the listener through the latest entry in the Basil of Baker Street series. Narrator Ralph Lister uses a variety of British regional and class accents to create the cast of mice, providing them with ample personality and differentiation. Dr. Dawson recounts his travels with Basil to Ratcliffe College, the alma mater of the Sherlockian mouse detective. The visit is intended as a fun holiday with old friends, but the escape of Ratigan from prison and the discovery of a haunted school library bring on mystery and adventure. The cultured tone Lister gives Basil contrasts with the affable tone of Dr. Dawson. Lister's boundless energy reflects the animated fun that makes this a great listen for the whole family.
