RABBIT EARS TREASURY OF ANIMAL STORIES How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin, How the Camel Got His Hump, How the Leopard Got His Spots, Monkey People

by | Read by Jack Nicholson, Danny Glover, Raul Julia

Children Ages 4-6 • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

You want to know the truth about how the camel got his hump? "You can't handle the truth!" That's what listeners will think when they listen to Jack Nicholson, one of the narrators of these tales. This sweet collection of four famous Rudyard Kipling stories is brought to life by Nicholson, Danny Glover, and Raul Julia. The deliveries are enhanced by musical accompaniment by Bobby McFerrin, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Lee Ritenour. Nicholson's delivery is surprisingly soft. Glover does his finest "best buddy" voice, and Julia sounds like everyone's favorite uncle. McFerrin might overdo his human beatbox role. Parents or teachers must explain some exotic characters in the works, like the djinn and the African Parsee Man. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
