by | Read by John C. Brown & Melissa Hughes

Children Ages 10+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

The lives and works of 20 writers come alive on these sprightly recordings. In an engaging and conversational style, Brown reads the male profiles while Hughes presents the profiles of the women. The biographies touch on highlights, emphasizing off-beat details, such as quirks of diet and dress, designed to capture the imagination of young listeners. Music following each biographical sketch introduces a segment focusing on famous works. The names of the 20 personalities highlighted in each volume are listed. Families will find these entertaining recordings memorable introductions to the great artistic virtuosos. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
