Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Children Ages 10+ • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Varjak is a young cat tired of the pampered, locked-up existence his many siblings and cousins take for granted as their due, coming from a long line of royal “Mesopotamian blues.” Soon enough disaster strikes, and it’s up to Varjak to seek help outside to save his family. Wonderful adventures ensue! There’s no better match for this material than the incomparable George Guidall. His dulcet voice and impeccable timing always ensure a great listening experience. Here he succeeds in hanging on to just enough “eow” sounds to suggest that you’re listening to a real cat. Further, Cludge the dog sounds so dumb, so energetic, and so lovable that one can only tip one’s hat to Guidall. D.G.
