Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Boris Karloff

Children Ages 8+ • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1971

Boris Karloff delivers Rudyard Kipling’s beloved animal stories in his inimitable style. This new format for a vintage Caedmon recording will become a family favorite. Travel to the “high and far-off times,” when once again the elephant’s child with “satiable curiosity” will have his nose elongated, the hedgehog and tortoise will confound the jaguar, the camel’s laziness and “humpf” will be immortalized with a hump, and even the mighty whale will be outmatched by someone in suspenders. Karloff narrates with eloquent locution and a full repertoire of creature voices that delight the ear. His command of the territory from “the banks of the turbid Amazon to the high veldt” rewards the listener with vivid images. State-of-the-art remastering adds a richness not found in the original presentation. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
