British naturalist Gerald Durrell has crammed too much ecology and not enough narrative tension into this fantastic adventure involving visits with a number of endangered species. A skilled professional, Nigel Lambert does his best to breathe life into the story, but he doesn't have much to work with. Consequently, his performance sounds strained, and many character voices seem affected. Early school-age children may find this acceptable, and adults may be tempted for its educational value, but we can do better. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 94]
