With exceptional performances by British actors Toyah Willcox, June Whitfield, Ron Moody, and Roy Hood, this audio dramatization from BBC Radio 4 will keep the attention of youngsters who are only familiar with the Disney version and will delight older listeners who have read the 1904 classic. Toyah Willcox is exuberant as Peter Pan, and Ron Moody performs the evil Captain Hook with menacing snarls. Also adding to the dramatization is a continuous array of sound effects--from the bark of Nanny to the crashing waves. Listeners will feel like they are also on the journey to Neverland.
