Children Ages 6+ • 1.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1962

These old-fashioned, quintessentially English stories are quite charming to listen to, as much for their British details as for the funny character sketches they contain. Jan Francis does a lovely job narrating these tales. We meet such friends as kindly Mr. and Mrs. Cocoa Jones, a pleasant and helpful train guard, and cross Mrs. Lock, all of whom Jan Francis endows with their own voices and personalities. Her ability to create the high-pitched voice of the little sister and to answer it with the solicitous, comfortable tone of elderly Mrs. Cocoa Jones is really impressive, and the stories will engage young listeners who know all about getting into trouble.
