OUR ISLAND STORY Volume 1: The Romans to Richard the Lionheart

by | Read by Anna Bentink, Daniel Philpott

Children Ages 10+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Not only will young listeners hear the fascinating story of Britain, they will also experience Marshall's Edwardian-style, since this history was written in 1905. Myth and reality are combined, substantially adding to the history commonly found in school books. Narrators Anna Bentinck and Daniel Philpott are spot-on as they continually switch accents and move from text to quotation in this fast-paced history. Bentinck presents the comprehensive introduction, and then she and Philpott take up the story, never failing to keep listeners' attention. Also included is a booklet that helpfully lists chapters, historical periods, and the placement of material on each CD. Listening to this unique presentation is a rewarding experience.
