Four British children acquire a magic carpet and embark on a series of adventures, most of which don’t turn out as planned. Although the style and setting are dated, the writing is witty and displays a genuine, timeless sympathy with childish sensibilities. Ward’s reading is something short of fully voiced but is very listenable. Her voice is pleasant; her tone and pacing are good. Don’t use this selection to recruit new audiobook fans from the ranks of Saturday morning cartoon devotees. But the child who is ready for rich language, a slow pace, and gentle humor will find it a pleasant diversion. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 95]
