Christopher Cazenove brings the world of Peter Pan, the eternal youth, and his sidekick, Tinker Bell, to life. From the moment Peter flies in through the open nursery window, Cazenove delivers the story of Peter and the Darling children with a sense of adventure. In a distinctive British voice Cazenove gives a definitive personality to each character. As blustery Captain Hook, he stretches out or speeds up phrases to depict Hook's fluctuating moods. When Peter is boasting in a guessing game with Hook, Cazenove uses a prideful voice. But his voice is anxious when Peter becomes aware of Tink’s grave sacrifice for his sake. Cazenove’s Wendy sounds dramatic as she delivers her “gentleman” speech to the boys before they walk the plank, and his Smee is appropriately swaggering. Families will enjoy this audio treat.
