Children Ages 4-6 • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Imagine a princess lighter than air--physically and emotionally--who continually needs help to stay earthbound. This version of MacDonald's witty classic is, unfortunately, unabridged: "not one single sentence has been omitted." This means that all the unnecessary and boring parts of MacDonald's story are there. It becomes a long, drawn-out story, in which everything ends up feeling extreme--too many words, too long pauses, too much inflection--making the characters seem one-dimensional and unsympathetic. The full cast helps differentiate the characters, but it's hard to work up much compassion for any of them. This production may be good for an adult theology lesson, but not for children's entertainment. W.L.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
