by | Read by Lyssa Browne

Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1967

This story, set in ancient Rome, tells the story of the barbarians' invasion--but from the point of view of Miranda the cat and her daughter, Punka, as the two flee the burning city. Lyssa Browne, whose voice may be familiar to listeners from her work on the Discovery Channel, does an excellent job here. Her narration is pleasing and carefully paced, but full of expression when dramatic moments unfold. Best of all, Browne fearlessly and authentically speaks the language of cats (including yowls, meows, and purrs) and capably translates the odd Latin phrase for listeners. Children will enjoy this taste of ancient history told from a brave cat's perspective. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
